Hike around Lake Minnewaska and along Beacon Hill

Sunday, March 25, 2018 10:00 AM - 01:00 PM

Join Stefan Ramirez, Student Conservation Association/AmeriCorps Educator, for a three-mile hike along the Lake Minnewaska Carriage Road, Beacon Hill Footpath and Beacon Hill Carriage Road. We'll walk the picturesque route around the Lake from West to East, stopping along the way for a short detour to a scenic vista of the Catskills. Then, we'll hike the Beacon Hill Footpath, which follows along the top edge of an east-facing escarpment and gets bathed in the warm, morning light. This walk will offer beautiful views of the Rondout and Wallkill Valleys below and the Catskill Mountains to the north. The carriage roads are relatively easy walking, however, the footpath does include some hills and tricky footing. Meet at the Minnewaska Nature Center.

Pre-registration is required by calling Minnewaska at 845-255-0752.
