Officials at Allegany State Park have announced their latest Third Saturday Trek, scheduled for the third Saturday of the month between May and October.
Get out of the house and come join in these free, family-friendly and fun hikes. These treks will be led by park staff or members of the Friends of Allegany State Park or Historical Society, and each will focus on a different area of the park.
This month’s hike will take place at 1 p.m. Oct. 19, led by Kevin Gallineau, a third-generation patron of over 65 years. Gallineau has been involved with different groups such as the Allegany State Park Historical Society and is a lifetime member and a founder of the Friends of Allegany State Park.
The hike will start at the Beehunter Picnic Area. Hikers are asked to dress for the weather with appropriate footwear — hiking boots recommended. Parts of this hike will be off-trail on rugged terrain. Each hike will last approximately two hours.
