Hike to Indian Rock at Sam’s Point
Saturday, December 10, 2022 11:30 AM - 02:30 PM
Minnewaska State Park Preserve: Sam's Point Area
Join Becca Howe-Parisio, Sam's Point Educator, for an interpretive hike to Indian Rock. We'll hike past the scenic vista at the Sam's Point Overlook and then make our way around Lake Maratanza. At Indian Rock, we'll enjoy beautiful views of the Catskill Mountains. During this almost five-mile hike, we'll traverse woods, roads and a rocky footpath featuring a bog bridge. Most of the terrain is fairly level with some short steep sections. Please bring a lunch, water, and appropriate clothing for the weather. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 18. If conditions are icy, participants are encouraged to bring Micro Spikes or other ice traction devices. Meet at the Sam's Point Visitor Center. Pre-registration is required by calling Sam's Point at 845-647-7989.
