“Hi guys! I was a regular for about five years in the late 90s/early 2000s. We had a pretty active local hike group near Detroit. I miss this place. :)
Anyway, I'm currently circling Lake Erie with my wife and 6 month old. We'll be in Erie, PA for the next few days.
I heard that there are some interesting rivers with steep banked walls/canyons along that stretch of the lake.
Anyone know anything?”
“Can't help you out RL, but the pics of you guys on your trip are great. That baby is adorable!”
“Six Mile Creek Park. I haven't been there, it's undeveloped and has shale gorges.
Presque Isle State Park is worth visiting.
Zoar Valley in NY is beautiful, I hear. Do an internet search.”
“Zoar Valley is pretty. it's not along the lake though.
up near/south of Buffalo is a great spot for fossil hunting. we had a bunch of fun exploring in this area. here's some info from "the fossil collecting directory"
-- Eighteen Mile Creek -- on the south side of Buffalo and located off route 5. The best hunting area is between the lake shore and the Route 5 bridge, at the mouth into Lake Erie. There used to be a place to park off the road (Rt. 5) by the bridge. It is about a quarter mile walk along paths to the lake”
