Hike to Verkeerder Kill Falls at Sam’s Point

Saturday, November 23, 2019 10:30 AM - 03:00 PM

Join Laura Davis Kennedy, Interpretive Ranger and Research Coordinator, for a hike to Verkeerderkill Falls. Falling 187 feet over a dramatic rocky ledge, Verkeerderkill Falls is the highest waterfall in the Shawangunk Mountains. We'll walk through the dwarf pitch pines and enjoy views of the Hudson Valley below. While this five-and-a-half-mile hike does not have significant elevation gain, it does include some steep, rocky terrain and a stream crossing. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 18. Meet at the Sam's Point Visitor Center. Pre-registration is required by calling Sam's Point at 845-647-7989.
