Join us for this three-mile loop on snowshoes to view magnificent Lake Maratanza. Winds blow almost continuously across this sky lake, causing large snow drifts that can reach incredible heights! On our way back toward the Visitor Center, we will stop at the Sam's Point Overlook where on a clear day there is a great view of the Wallkill Valley, the Catskills and much more. Snowshoes may be rented for this program for a fee of $5 per person. If there is insufficient snow cover, this program will be offered as a hike. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 18. Meet at the Sam's Point Visitor Center. Pre-registration is required by calling Sam's Point at 845-647-7989.
