Tuesday Trek: Old Powerhouse and Compass Rock Scenic View Snowshoe Outing at Minnewaska

Tuesday, January 26, 2021 09:30 AM - 01:30 PM

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. Some may find this off-trail walk challenging as it includes a stream crossing, bushwhacking and a steep, rocky section. We'll return to join the Red Loop Footpath, which continues along the edges of the Peter's Kill stream. 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. Due to COVID protocols, the total number of participants for this program is limited to ten 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 at the Peter's Kill Parking Area. Pre-registration is required by calling Minnewaska at 845-255-0752.
