Hike to the Shingle Gully Ice Caves

Saturday, July 2, 2022 09:30 AM - 05:00 PM

Explore Shingle Gully, where ice persists into summer in deep, crevice caves. These caves are in a backcountry area in Minnewaska State Park Preserve. This rugged, protected landscape is accessible only on guided tours led by Park staff and volunteer docents. This all-day, strenuous, approximately six-mile adventure ascends and descends 1,500 feet. It includes off-trail bushwhacking and steep rock scrambles and is only appropriate for experienced hikers. To register, please visit http://samspoint.eventbrite.com. Pre-registration deadline: June 27.
