Tuesday Trek: Multiple Scenic Views Hike and Blueberry Picking at Minnewaska

Tuesday, July 23, 2024 09:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Join Laura Conner, Environmental Educator, for an approximately five-mile hike to Echo Rock and Kempton Ledge, starting in the Meadows, where we'll pick blueberries as we walk. The cliff-edge, scenic views from both Echo Rock and Kempton Ledge are spectacular, featuring the surrounding Park Preserve and sometimes even High Point State Park in New Jersey. To reach our destinations, we'll walk along Lake Minnewaska, Castle Point, Millbrook Mountain and Hamilton Point Carriage Roads. These carriage roads offer a flat, even surface that is perfect for walkers who may find rocky and root-covered footpaths challenging. All participants should come well prepared with appropriate footwear, food, and water. Meet at the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center. Pre-registration is required by calling the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center at 845-255-0752.
