Oswayo Creek (Shinglehouse, PA to Toll Gate, NY)

We put in at Assembly Park in Shinglehouse on the day after a tremendous rain in May. The creek was running very high that day. We got into trouble soon after the put-in, finding ourselves pinned up against a mud bank with a strong current in a tight turn. We were questioning whether this was going to be a paddle-able stream at that point! But the rest of the paddle was manageable and we had a fantastic day on the water. We encountered some immature barn owls sitting on a branch over the water, lots of herons and a number of bald eagles, the usual waterfowl and (best of all) no humans. We took out at Riverhurst Park in Portville (Seek permission, it's a private campground. The owner is very nice.). We paddled this creek in a tandem kayak and are experienced river paddlers.

Bay Trail

I joined Alltrails today because a friend recommended I go Hiking. Never have I hiked before but I decided to get some of my load baring gear that I received from the Military and ventured out. Being my first day out for adventure I didn't bring one of most important pieces to a Hiker - a map. I didn't scout the trail, nor did I do enough research to look at Topo maps. I just blindly walked into the wilderness (something you should never do by the way). Onward to the review:

After about 15 minutes of doing circles I realized I didn't even fully go into the trail head yet. Once I venture out a little bit I started to see markers on the trees. From my observations, there are 3 different trail difficulties here. BLUE markers indicate a mellow and easy trail. YELLOW marks a slightly more difficult trail with the potential for injury at some points according to me. Lastly, RED/ORANGE indicates the most difficult trail - at least from my standpoint. I happened to follow the blue trail into the yellow trail, eventually winding up on the red trail after I went up a 70 degree incline. It was very steep to the point where I had to grab roots from falling. This huge incline is located on the Bay Front side of the YELLOW trail. The Bay itself is nothing too overwhelming - just a great view if it's a nice and sunny day. Overall, I would give this trail a 4, the only reason I gave it a 5 was because this was my first official trail and this is also my first official review.

This was a great trail wandering along the river and through the woods. The water was an amazing turquoise. Trail was pretty easy but hiking out of the canyon at the end was not fun and we lost the trail at one point. Definitely worth the trip!
