Comments
Comments: I moved to the Sugar Hill Rd neighborhood not too long ago and since I'm snowed in today and not going anywhere in the car, I decided to walk down the street and explore the Schindler/Schmidt Conservation Area. It's a nice little area to hike through. Lot's of animal tracks, rock outcrops and small ravines to scramble on. I was the only hiker today and broke trail the entire time but they are all well-blazed. Check out the video link below, if interested.
