Tuesday Trek: Out and Back to Gertrude’s Nose at Minnewaska

Tuesday, September 28, 2021 09:30 AM - 02:30 PM

Join Laura Conner, Environmental Educator and Vanessa Pagano, Student Conservation Association/AmeriCorps Member, for an adventurous, six-mile hike to Gertrude's Nose and back on the same route. This footpath, which traverses an escarpment edge, offers one of the most expansive views in Minnewaska. From our start at Lake Minnewaska, this route will follow Millbrook Mountain Carriage Road to Gertrude's Nose Footpath, which offers broad views of the Wallkill Valley, Taconic Mountains and beyond. This modestly challenging hike includes a steep rock scramble, a few hills and some tricky footing. Participants must bring water, snacks and lunch and wear appropriate hiking shoes. All unvaccinated participants are encouraged to wear face coverings and keep a minimum six-foot distance away from others who are not part of their immediate household. Additionally, all unvaccinated visitors should wear a mask when inside buildings. Meet at the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center. Pre-registration is required by calling Minnewaska at 845-255-0752.
