Hike through a Forest of Flowers on Beacon Hill at Minnewaska

Wednesday, June 19, 2024 09:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Join Laura Conner, Environmental Educator, for a morning hike to see the gorgeous, pink and white blooms of the mountain laurel bushes. Our route will follow the Beacon Hill Carriage Road, which features a gorgeous Catskills viewpoint, to reach the Beacon Hill Footpath. From here, we'll hike along the cliff-edge of the Beacon Hill Footpath, through the cool woods amidst a riot of blooming mountain laurel, before continuing along the scenic Lake Minnewaska Carriage Road. This moderate, three-mile-long hike does include some cliffs and hills. Meet at the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center. Pre-registration is required by calling the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center at 845-255-0752.
