Scenic Streamside Snowshoe Hike at Minnewaska

Sunday, February 25, 2024 10:00 AM - 02:30 PM

Join Laura Conner, Environmental Educator, for a snowshoe hike in the wintry woods. During this approximately three-and-a-half-mile, snowshoe outing on the Mossy Glen Footpath, participants will walk through the forest, following near the edge of the Peter's Kill stream. Along the way, we'll look for animal tracks, floating ice pancakes and hanging icicles; all part of the magic of winter. The footpath can be tricky footing, with icy patches and exposed tree roots, but the return trip on Lower Awosting Carriage Road is flat and relatively easy. A limited number of snowshoes are available for participants to borrow for this program from the Education Department. Otherwise, snowshoes may be rented for this program from the Park Preserve for a fee of $5 per person. Please plan to arrive by 9:30 a.m. if you will be borrowing snowshoes. If there is insufficient snow cover, this program will be offered as a hike and participants are strongly encouraged to bring micro spikes or other ice traction devices. Meet at the Lower Parking Area. Pre-registration is required by calling the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center at 845-255-0752.
