ASP 1, Allegany State Park, NY
From the Red House Area drive south on ASP 1 to the parking area (on your right) across from the trail head (on your left) that is just pass the intersection with France Brook Road and just before the intersection with Bay State Road
This 4 mile hike is on the official Allegany State Park Eastwood Meadow Trail.
Meet at the parking area across from the trail head sign on ASP 1 that is between the spots where France Brook Road and Bay State Road intersect ASP 1.
The hike will take you from ASP 1 to a meadow on the edge of Bay State Road where you’ll get a nice view of the ridge leading to Bear Mountain.
Along the way you’ll pass the base of an old ski area from which you can see one of the towers for the ski tow.
