Finally did Great Flats Nature Trail in Rotterdam. I have driven past the trail head many times and wanted to check it out. As we were getting out of the van I noticed other people in the parking lot putting on Yaktrax luckily we had them in the van from last week. It was a good thing I noticed it because the boardwalks were icey and it definately made a difference wearing them. We were pleasantly surprised and look forward to going back when it's warmer. Considering how close the trail is to the highway Great Flats was a very nice hike with not much noice polution . One thing I would like to make mention of is the number of thorny vines on this trail. Towards the end of the hike I grazed one and it ripped my coat. Hope to be on the move on another trail next weekend.
