Hike around Lake Minnewaska and along Beacon Hill Footpath

Sunday, May 9, 2021 10:00 AM - 01:00 PM

Join Laura Conner, Environmental 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 all the scenic vistas. 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 and the Catskill Mountains to the north. The carriage roads are relatively easy walking, however, the footpath does include some hills and tricky footing. 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 their immediate household. This program will meet at the Minnewaska Visitor Center. Pre-registration is required by calling Minnewaska at 845-255-0752.
