Millbrook Mountain and Lake Minnewaska Loop Hike at Minnewaska

Saturday, October 15, 2022 09:30 AM - 01:30 PM

Join Nick Martin, Park Educator, for an approximately five-mile hike to Millbrook Mountain and back. This hike will take participants along the Lake Minnewaska Carriage Road, out to Millbrook Mountain, then back to the Lake Minnewaska Carriage Road, as we return to our starting point. The Millbrook Mountain viewpoint offers a panoramic view of the Wallkill Valley and beyond from a cliff side perch, marked with small pitch pine trees. Our return trip will include some views over the Palmaghatt Ravine, which should look lovely dressed in its fall foliage. The footpath section of this hike includes sections of bare rock, a stream crossing, exposed tree roots, and sections of continuous uphill that some may find challenging. Participants must bring water, snacks, and wear appropriate hiking shoes. Meet at the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center. Pre-registration is required by calling the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center at 845-255-0752.
