Minnewaska State Park Preserve
(845) 255-0752

Join Laura Conner, Environmental Educator, for an early winter walk along four carriage roads to reach the picturesque Echo Rock and Patterson’s Pellet scenic views. Carriage road walking is relatively easy. The surface is flat, firm and smooth, so this walk may be a good fit for people who are less comfortable with footpaths, but still enjoy walking in the woods. From Echo Rock, both Gertrude’s Nose and Patterson’s Pellet can be seen in the distance across the steep-sided Palmaghatt Ravine. From Pattereson’s Pellet, on a clear day, we’ll see the stone tower at High Point State Park in New Jersey. This approximately six-mile round trip walk is a great way to warm up, get outside and fight cabin fever. Meet at the Minnewaska Nature Center. If the carriage roads at Lake Minnewaska are groomed for cross-country skiing, the location for this hike will change. Pre-registration is required by calling Minnewaska at 845-255-0752.
