Geology Walk to Minelot Creek Waterfalls

Saturday, September 2, 2017 10:00 AM

Escape the summer heat and join our Geology Educator on a shady hike to the Paint Mine waterfalls. We'll take a portion of The Long Path that parallels the cool-running Minelot Creek, visiting 2 main waterfalls and a few smaller cascades. Compare 3 different rock types along this 2 mile (round trip) inclined walk as we pass through the New Scotland shaly-limestone, Esopus shale, and Onondaga limestone. Meet at 10am at the Visitor Center, call 518-872-0800 to register. .
