Tuesday Trek: High Peter’s Kill and Awosting Falls Loop Hike at Minnewaska

Tuesday, June 25, 2024 09:30 AM - 02:30 PM

Come explore the picturesque High Peter's Kill Footpath with Josh Grosse, Student Conservation Association/AmeriCorps Environmental Educator, on this approximately four-and-a-half-mile hike. We'll start by walking downhill on the High Peter's Kill Footpath, which features a variety of terrain along a cliff edge with numerous, scenic viewpoints. We'll follow this until we reach the Yellow Connector Footpath, which hugs the frothing edges of the Peter's Kill stream. We'll hike up the east spur of the Red Loop Footpath and take a short break at the Peter's Kill restrooms. For our return trip, we'll walk along the easy-going Awosting Falls Carriage Road, past the beautiful and iconic Awosting Falls. This hike does include rocky, narrow and steep sections of trail that may be challenging for some. Participants should bring enough water and food for the outing and wear proper hiking shoes. Meet in the Lower Parking Area. Pre-registration is required by calling the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center at 845-255-0752.
