Hamilton and Castle Point Loop Hike at Minnewaska

Saturday, October 29, 2022 09:30 AM - 01:30 PM

Join Nick Martin, Park Educator, for an approximately eight-mile, loop walk loaded with breathtaking, cliff-edge views. Starting on the Lake Minnewaska Carriage Road, we'll walk until we get to the intersection of Millbrook Mountain Carriage Road and continue until we reach the intersection with Hamilton Point Carriage Road. We'll follow this carriage road until we reach the intersection with Castle Point Carriage Road, which we'll follow until we return to Lake Minnewaska. Along the way, we will enjoy views of the Palmaghatt Ravine and the distant Lake Awosting. The carriage roads at Minnewaska feature a firm, stable surface that many find easy to walk on. Participants should pack water, lunch, snacks, and wear appropriate shoes and clothing for the seasonal weather conditions. Meet at the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center. Pre-registration is required by calling the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center at 845-255-0752.
