Hit the Trails: Winter Fun in Montgomery County

Getting outdoors and enjoying Montgomery County’s picturesque scenery doesn’t need to stop just because the snow has started to fly. While many love to hit the trails on their snowmobiles, and there are miles of trails to explore, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing are two other great family-friendly ways to enjoy a winter day.

Whether you’re exploring Wintergreen Falls, Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site or one of our many other parks and hiking trails, there’s plenty of places to discover. 

If you haven’t tried it before, snowshoeing is a great way to exercise and spend time with friends and loved-ones during the colder months. While many winter sports can be intimidating to take up, snowshoeing can be enjoyed by people of all ages and athletic abilities. All you need to start is a pair of snowshoes and some warm clothes. 

Once you’ve decided to get outdoors, here are some helpful tips to make sure you enjoy the experience.

  • Start Small and Work Toward Bigger Hikes – If it’s your first time snowshoeing make it a manageable activity. You don’t want to start with a long up-and-down mountain trail if it’s your first time strapping on your snowshoes. Start at your local park or ball fields. Explore flat ground where you can reasonably walk before moving on to more difficult trails. 
  • Bring a Friend or Loved-One – Nothing is more fun than spending time with someone whose company you enjoy. Snowshoeing is no different. Bring a loved-one or a friend whose skill level matches yours, so that both of you enjoy the activity. 
  • Dress According to the Conditions – Snowshoeing can be an invigorating activity with positive health benefits, but you have to be prepared. As with other winter activities, it’s important to dress for the weather with warm boots, hats, gloves and proper outerwear. Remember, conditions in the winter can change fast, so be sure to check the weather before you set out and layer cold weather clothing accordingly to ensure you are prepared. When in doubt, remember the Boy Scout motto, “Be Prepared.”
  • Don’t Forget the Essentials – Yes, you need winter clothing and snowshoes, but with all winter sports it’s important to remember the other essentials. Water, sun protection and a healthy snack will make your hike more enjoyable and have you ready to go back out again.

Snowshoeing isn’t the only outdoor activity that’s great family fun. The Erie Canalway Trail offers miles of perfect conditions for cross country skiing enthusiasts. Set out from one of the many public parking areas along the trail and enjoy historic sites, scenic vistas and more. You can also find prime conditions at many of the same parks and historic sites enjoyed by snowshoers.

MONTGOMERY COUNTY TO HOST 250THCELEBRATION FOR HISTORIC TRYON COUNTY

The county was name in honor of William Tryon, the last provincial governor of New York. It featured prominently during the Revolutionary War, including the Battle of Oriskany, which was fought on August 6, 1777, between 740 Tryon militiamen, supported by 60 allied Oneidas, and the British Army.

Not Just for Kids Storytelling Series Returns for 30th Year

The Friends of Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site are excited to announce that the 30th Annual Not Just for Kids Storytelling series will occur at the Erie Canal historic site in 2022.  Award winning storytellers from the region will perform tales to intrigue, legends to compel, and stories that illustrate how we are all connected as human beings. The series is open to the public and is meant for all ages. It runs on Sunday evenings at 6pm from July 31st to August 28th outside the Schoharie Crossing Visitor Center, 129 Schoharie Street in Fort Hunter, New York.

Eileen Mack and Claire Nolan will begin the series on July 31st with a set of stories they call “Blessings of Trees & Earth: Stories Honoring the Natural World.”  These talented and accomplished tellers are from the Capital-Region with years of experience engaging audiences of all ages.

On August 7th, Lale Davidson will perform “Folktales and Family Tales: Quaking Bogs, Fairy Queens, and Mystery on the High Plains.”  Davidson comes from a strong line of storytellers, from Kentucky cousins telling family tales around the kitchen table to her mother conjuring Greek gods on camping trips across Europe. This program combines Irish fairy tales about chasing corpses through quaking bogs with true family tales of mysterious lights on the high plains in South America, taken from her magical realist novel, Blue Woman Burning. She’ll also tell stories from her collection, Strange Appetites, published by Red Penguin Books.

August 14th, the multi-talented Tim Van Egmond will dazzle the audience with, “The Eye of the Beholder,” a program of tales about epiphanies of beauty and insight. Have you ever had an experience in which something suddenly raised your awareness and appreciation, and it’s as if curtains were pulled away or you were seeing with new eyes? Including folktales and a personal tale, these stories have shifts in perspective like this, openings for the mind and the heart that lead to new understanding.

Turtle Clan member of the Onondaga Nation, Perry Ground has been telling stories for more than 25 years as a way of educating people about the culture, beliefs, and history of the Haudenosaunee (sometimes known as Iroquois) Confederacy. Ground will be at Schoharie Crossing on August 21st with “Stories from the People of the Longhouse.” This presentation is filled with traditional Haudenosaunee legends that have been told for hundreds of years. These stories teach about the beliefs, customs, and history of the Haudenosaunee people.

Concluding the series will be The Storycrafters on August 28th.  Barry Marshall, and Jeri Burns, PhD have been working together as The Storycrafters since 1991 and have been the recipients of the National Storytelling Network’s “Circle of Excellence” Award.  They believe in the time-tested wisdom of traditional stories and share that wisdom with today’s audiences. They strive to honor world cultures by telling the old stories in respectful ways, often integrating the musical instruments, songs or dances indigenous to that region. Then of course, look out for their original modern renditions of the oldest stories … some of their most requested material.

This free series is rain or shine. Please bring a lawn chair or blanket to enjoy the outdoor performances. If raining, we will hold performances inside the Enders House adjacent to the Visitor Center. Donations are always greatly appreciated and gladly accepted.

The grounds for the site are open all year from sunrise to sunset.  Visitor Center hours are Wednesday through Saturday, 10am to 4pm and Sunday 1pm to 4pm. Group reservations available for off hours.

Great Outdoors Month Events Planned at Schoharie Crossing

Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site will celebrate June as Great Outdoors Month by offering fun opportunities to enjoy the outdoor spaces at the Erie Canal site. Great Outdoors Month is a month-long celebration of responsible, healthy outdoor recreation on local, state, and federal lands and waters.

The return of Putman Porch Music on Thursdays from 6:30pm to 8:00pm will be a great way to enjoy an evening of musicians jamming Americana, Roots, Bluegrass, and Folk tunes. Kicking off on June 2nd, this series invites local musicians to come spend an evening on the historic Putman Canal Store porch to jam and enliven the vibe of the former Erie Canal stop off.  Putman’s store building is located at Yankee Hill Lock on the grounds of Schoharie Crossing, 553 Queen Anne Road.  Much like a group of canawlers that happen to be stuck waiting at the lock, a few instruments and strong voices is all that is needed to pass the time. 

Get outdoors and peddle your way on World Bicycle Day, June 3rd at 6:00pm from Yankee Hill Lock to Karen’s Ice Cream. This staff lead ride will be along the Empire State Trail, covering three miles each way.  The site encourages families to participate and enjoy a delicious ice cream cone before riding back.

On National Trails Day, Saturday, June 4th, Schoharie Crossing is collaborating with ECOS: The Environmental Clearinghouse to offer a paddle on the Schoharie and Mohawk River starting at 9am and a guided naturewalk at 1pm from the Visitor Center. Bring your canoe or kayak to the Schoharie Aqueduct Boat-launch on Dufel Rd, just off NYS Rt. 5S for a leisurely paddle to explore the nature and history of these waterways. Overall, we’ll paddle about three miles and discover some fascinating connections this spot has to places near and far. Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy after the paddle and before the nature walk, starting from 129 Schoharie Street in Fort Hunter. We’ll traverse about a mile of the old canal towpath, were mules once pulled barges.  Now, these paths are lined with interesting plants, wildflowers, birds, and other critters we might see along the way.

Saturday, June 18th we’ll host a picnic at Empire Lock as we celebrate International Picnic Day. At 11:30am, we’ll take a short half-mile walk from our Visitor Center to Empire Lock to enjoy a Bring Your Own Picnic together.This is a great way to spend part of the day before Father’s Day! Discover some beauty among the towpath trail and historic Erie Canal features.  The site will provide a Picnic Basket Shuttle, transporting your lunch and keeping it safe from Yogi.

These events are a fun way to add miles to the Canalway Challenge, a program sponsored by the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor. More information on this free challenge can be found online at: https://eriecanalway.org/canalway-challenge

To wrap up the month, on Tuesday, June 28th at 6:30pm the Friends of Schoharie Crossing host environmental educator and author, Anita Sanchez for Puddles! “There’s nothing shallow about a puddle! Puddles are homes, bathtubs, and drinking fountains for wildlife. They also provide a key ingredient for many animal homes: mud! This hands-on program will introduce naturalists to the animals that use puddles as a habitat. We’ll meet some puddle-loving creatures, including snails, and have some close-up experience with mud.  

The grounds for the site are open all year from sunrise to sunset.  Visitor Center hours are Wednesday through Saturday, 10am to 4pm and Sunday 1pm to 4pm. Group reservations available for off hours.

James Kirby Martin – Executive Producer & Chief Historian

Martin is a nationally recognized scholar of Early American history, especially the era of the American Revolution, and he is also well known for his writings on various aspects of American military and social history. He received his B.A. degree from Hiram College (summa cum laude) and then earned his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He began his teaching career at Rutgers University, where he earned the rank of Professor of History and also served for a period as Vice President for Academic Affairs. In 1980, he moved to the University of Houston, having accepted the assignment of serving as Department Chair of History with the mandate to foster the development of a cutting edge program fully devoted to excellence in teaching and the production of high quality scholarship.

Martin helped found the Papers of Thomas Edison project at Rutgers University and for a few years was a member of its board of advisers. He also served on the advisory board of the Papers of William Livingston project. He was the general editor of a book series on the “American Social Experience” (New York University Press) and likewise was a consulting editor for a book series entitled “Conversations with the Past” (Brandywine Press). Martin is currently serving on the advisory board of editors of the “Critical Historical Encounters” book series sponsored by Oxford University Press. He has done consulting with some of the nation’s most eminent law firms in regard to the history of various consumer products, including alcohol and tobacco, and has both appeared on and advised on television programs aired by the History Channel and American Heroes Channel.

Martin serves as historian adviser to the Oneida Indian Nation of New York. He is a Member of the Board of Trustees of the Fort Plain Museum.

Tom Mercer – Producer & Writer

Tom Mercer grew up steeped in Revolutionary War history. As a youth he enjoyed riding his bicycle around the Saratoga Battlefield — a truly magical place on the bluffs overlooking the Hudson River. Typical family outings during childhood were visits to historic sites and museums all around the region where the northern campaign of the Revolution was fought. He and his mother shared a fascination with the paradox of Benedict Arnold, hero and traitor. Indeed, a frequent topic of dinner table conversation. If there was ever any doubt, his classmates got confirmation Tom Mercer was a history geek when he gave an award winning address about the Battle of Saratoga at his High School graduation.

Mercer studied film at Ithaca College where he graduated with a dual major in History and Politics. A twenty-year career in government gave way to a second career as an independent filmmaker. He wrote and directed the feature film UNCIVIL LIBERTIES, a highly acclaimed political thriller, and several short films shown at festivals in the US and Europe.

Tom has found the long commitment to making BENEDICT ARNOLD: HERO BETRAYED with his two principle partners to be an incredibly rewarding endeavor. If this film helps give his home region and its local hero the proper respect deserved for their contribution to the founding of the nation Tom says it will have been worth the years of effort and sacrifice.

This event is made possible through an Anonymous Donor – Thank you all for your support!

Cheese Factory System Lecture offered by Schoharie Crossing

Schoharie Crossing will be hosting the first of their Third Thursday Winter Lecture series on January 20th at 7pm via the online platform WebEx.  Patrick Reynolds from the Oneida County Historical Center will discuss Jesse Williams and the Cheese Factory System.

Just North of Rome, NY, the modern cheese industry was born in 1851.  Jesse Williams was a successful farmer and cheese maker but believed by working together as cooperative dairies, farmers could maximize their profits.  This led him to start the first cheese factory in the United States, a move that revolutionized agriculture not only locally, but across the nation.

On the 100th anniversary of Jesse’s cheese factory, John H. Kraft, president of Kraft Foods, proclaimed that “pioneers like Jesse Williams… [fathered] the ideas and tools that have made America great.” This man, Kraft said, “exemplified the spirit which has made the dairy industry the largest agricultural industry in America.”

Jesse Williams died in 1864 at age 67. At that time Oneida County was making over eight million pounds of cheese per year.  Williams never patented his cheese-making inventions but gave them to the agricultural world.

Patrick Reynolds is Director of Public Programs at the Oneida County History Center.  He is a graduate of the Cooperstown Program in Museum Studies.  He has worked in museums throughout the United States including Hanford Mills Museum, Berks County Historical Society, Rome Historical Society, and The Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation.

This program is free and open to the public.  No registration is required. A link to the WebEx can be found on the Schoharie Crossing Facebook or by contacting the site directly.  For more information about these programs, please call the Visitor Center at (518) 829-7516, email SchoharieCrossing@parks.ny.gov, or visit our Facebook page.

The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation oversees more than 250 individual state parks, historic sites, golf courses, boat launches and recreational trails, which are visited by 78 million people annually.  For more information on any of these recreation areas, call 518-474-0456 or visit www.nysparks.com, connect on Facebook, or follow on Twitter
