Ramble Event: Geology Hike at Sam’s Point

Saturday, September 25, 2021 10:00 AM - 02:00 PM

Join Rebecca Howe-Parisio, Interpretive Ranger, on a four-mile hike around Lake Maratanza and the Ice Caves to study how the mountain and caves formed. Participants should come prepared with water, snacks, sunscreen, and appropriate footwear for difficult and slippery terrain in the ice caves, where ice persists year-round. All unvaccinated participants are encouraged to wear face coverings and keep a minimum six-foot distance away from others who are not part of their immediate household. Additionally, all unvaccinated visitors should wear a mask when inside buildings. Meet at the Sam's Point Visitor Center. Pre-registration is required by calling Sam's Point at 845-647-7989.
