The February hike will meet at 10AM. This “almost in Chautauqua County” hike explores another section of the Dunkirk, Allegheny Valley and Pittsburgh Railroad line along the scenic Conewango Creek in Russell, PA. There could be a chance to see ducks or eagles, so bring binoculars if you want. The hike is a flat 2 mile path north toward Akeley, for a round trip total of 4 miles. (can turn around at any point to shorten)

The directions are as follows: Head south on 62 from Route 60 in Jamestown or 62 in Frewsburg toward Warren. Drive 8.9 miles to the blinking light at Russell. Turn left (east) on Liberty St./Priest Hollow Road. Wind your way through Russell past Main St. and the Post Office and cross the bridge over Conewango Creek (.5 miles) to Cider Mill Hill Road (just past the bridge). Turn left and park at the Pine Grove Township maintenance area on the left, about 200-300 feet up Cider Mill Hill Rd. Coordinates are 41.9382924, -79.1318269.
Parking is at Pine Grove township maintenance area right as you turn left on Cider Mill Rd.
