Two Views Across the Ravine at Minnewaska

Sunday, May 26, 2024 09:30 AM - 01:00 PM

Join Laura Conner, Environmental Educator, for a moderate, three-and-a-half-mile-long hike to Kempton Ledge and Patterson's Pellet, two cliff-edge views on either side of the Palmaghatt Ravine. Beginning from the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center, we'll follow Lake Minnewaska, Castle Point, Hamilton Point and Millbrook Mountain Carriage Roads on an approximately five-mile-long walk. Our first stop will be at Kempton Ledge, where we'll see the Hudson River as well as Storm King and Breakneck Mountains in the distance. We'll also enjoy glorious views of the untouched forest in the Palmaghatt Ravine, bursting into its spring green of new leaves. Then, we'll walk to Patterson's Pellet, where the stone tower at High Point State Park in New Jersey can be seen on the horizon when the skies are clear. Meet at the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center. Pre-registration is required by calling the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center at 845-255-0752.
