Join Laura Conner, Environmental Educator, for an adventurous outing along the edge of the Peter's Kill stream. Our first destination is the site of the old hydro-electric powerhouse for the former hotels once located at Lake Minnewaska.

If conditions are safe, we'll continue to the Bullwheel and High Peter's Kill Footpaths to reach Compass Rock, which offers a vast scenic view. The total distance for this outing is approximately two-and-a-half miles. A limited number of snowshoes are available to borrow from the education department for this outing. Plan to arrive at 9:00 a.m. if you would like to borrow snowshoes. If there is insufficient snow cover, this program will be offered as a hike.
