Tea Time Hike High Peter’s Kill / Awosting Falls Loop

Saturday, August 22, 2020 09:00 AM - 01:30 PM

Come join Student Conservation Association/AmeriCorps Member, Sarah LaLumiere, and learn about the different plants found in nature which can be used for making tea. Collecting plants is not allowed at Minnewaska, however, we will discuss how to identify these plants along with the beneficial properties that they offer while hiking the High Peter's Kill Footpath. This hike features a variety of terrain, along a cliff escarpment with numerous, scenic viewpoints and one steep hill to climb up. For our return trip, we'll walk along the easy-going Awosting Falls Carriage Road, past the beautiful and iconic Awosting Falls. This hike does include rocky, narrow sections of trail that may be challenging for some. Due to COVID protocols, the total number of participants for this program is limited to nine individuals. All participants must wear face coverings or keep a minimum six foot distance away from others who are not part of your immediate household. Meet in the Awosting Parking Area. Pre-registration is required by calling Minnewaska at 845-255-0752.
