As a popular resort built in the late 19th century, Minnewaska had many rustic covered benches and gazebos situated at scenic vistas, called summerhouses. These summerhouses were built to blend effortlessly into the natural environment and were for resort guests to enjoy and connect to the outdoors. All but one of these structures has been removed, but observant hikers can still find clues about where they used to be. This approximately two and a half mile interpretive hike will take participants on a search for clues of these historic structures and vistas around the Lake Minnewaska area. This outing will meet at the Minnewaska Nature Center.
Pre-registration is required by phone by September 19. Contact: 845-255-0752
