Beacon Hill and Lake Minnewaska Carriage Road Loop at Minnewaska

Saturday, October 22, 2022 09:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Join Nick Martin, Park Educator, for an approximately three-mile loop hike on the Beacon Hill Carriage Road, Beacon Hill Footpath, and Lake Minnewaska Carriage Road. Starting at the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center, our route will take participants to the Beacon Hill Carriage Road, which we'll walk until we intersect the Beacon Hill Footpath. From here, we'll follow this footpath until it ends at a field with a lovely view of the Wallkill Valley. From this field, we'll continue on the Lake Minnewaska Carriage Road, heading around the south and then the west side of Lake Minnewaska. The footpath section of this hike includes sections of bare rock, bare soil with tree roots and short 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.
