The Finger Lakes Trail across upstate NY was started in 1962, and for nearly 25 of those years, Howard Beye was THE major volunteer for the organization that tends it. He was a deeply involved trail chair, keeping track of map updates, organizing and training those who adopt portions of our over 900-mile trail system, tracking volunteer hours for every one of them during an annual “census,” arranging Challenge Cost Share projects, and organizing every one of our three to four special work-week projects, the annual “Alley Cats,” and handling the majority of correspondence with the state agencies who host many miles of our trail.
2020 HOWARD BEYE WINTER HIKE
The FLT Winter hike to honor Howard Beye will be led by Scott Brooks. He will be posting detailed information on this page and on the FLT “Hiking” group a week or so before the hike, as to the date, location, and time.
Winter months can be challenging for a scheduled-in-advance hike, with weather and snow conditions affecting everything from driving to the hike location, to parking, to the hike itself. Scott will be coming up with an appropriate hike taking into account all of those factors. Scott is a resident of the Rochester area, as was Howard Beye.
