Carlo Chizzolin Memorial Hike/Bushwhack on Buck Mtn..SATURDAY, AUGUST 17, 2019
Carlo, who passed this last year, was a well-loved hike leader for the chapter.  He was a winter Catskill and Adirondack Winter 46er, and was the Outings Chair in the early ’90s.  He used to lead this trip, which is a bushwhack up Buck Mountain from the hairpin turn just as the trail starts to climb.  It is steep but up open ledges with great views almost all the way up.  On the way back, we will take a bushwhack route parallel to the trail that follows a nearly continuous line of waterfalls.  This trip is approximately 6.5 miles with 1600 feet of elevation gain.
