It's time now to meet the newest members of our Morning Mug Club -- brought to you by Holland Farms Bakery & Deli. 

2021 is a big year for the 'Tramp and Trail Club of Utica', as they are celebrating the 100th year of their volunteer-organized hiking club. 

Founded in 1921 by 23 Uticans, the 'Tramp and Trail Club of Utica' is the oldest hiking club in New York State. 

The date of April 8, 2021 holds a special significance to them, as it marks 100 years from the club's first meeting at the Utica Public Library to plan their first-ever hike as a group. 

With 250 members strong, members are from a 75 mile radius of Utica. 

They have met at least weekly for 100 years, to either hike, snowshoe, cross-country ski, bike,even canoe and kayak. 

the group ventures to all areas of new york state and beyond. 

So to mark the 100 years, they are celebrating with a hike on Saturday, April 24, 2021 leaving Roscoe Conkling Park at 10:30 a.m. 

They are looking to retrace the route of their first hike in 1921 to Utica's Cascade Glen area. 

Participation is free and open to all adults and children (if accompanied by an adult). 

They also have two extended hiking trips planned during the year. 

The first is to Pipestem, West Virginia and the other is to Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado.
