Scenic Meadows to Kempton Ledge Hike at Minnewaska

Sunday, December 11, 2022 10:00 AM - 02:00 PM

Join Laura Conner, Environmental Educator, for an approximately six-mile hike on four historic carriage roads and one footpath. Starting from the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center, we will hike a short section of the Lake Minnewaska Carriage Road and continue on the Upper Awosting Carriage Road until we intersect the Meadows footpath. Then, we'll continue walking through sections of the former Lake Minnewaska resort's apple orchard and golf course until we intersect Castle Point Carriage Road. We'll continue on this carriage road until we arrive at Kempton Ledge, a scenic vista that overlooks the Palmaghatt Ravine. Returning along the Castle Point Carriage Road until we intersect the Lake Minnewaska Carriage Road, we'll continue walking west to east around the Lake, stopping to admire all the scenic views until we return to the Visitor Center. If conditions are icy, participants are encouraged to bring Micro Spikes or other ice traction devices and to dress appropriately for the cold. Meet at the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center. Pre-registration is required by calling the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center at 845-255-0752.
