Tuesday Trek: Spring Flowers along the Cliff at Minnewaska

Tuesday, May 24, 2022 09:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Join Laura Conner, Environmental Educator, and Diana Beckenhaupt, Student Conservation Association/AmeriCorps Environmental Educators, 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. 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 bright, green, spring foliage in 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. Meet at the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center. Pre-registration is required by calling the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center at 845-255-0752.
