Echo Rock Holiday Hike at Minnewaska

Saturday, December 23, 2023

10 am – 1 pm

$10 per vehicle parking fee

Need a break from the family or just need to get outside in the crisp, winter air? Join Nick Martin, Park Educator, for a four-mile, pre-holiday hike to the scenic vista of Echo Rock. Leaving from the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center, we will walk the Lake Minnewaska, Millbrook Mountain, and Hamilton Point Carriage Roads to arrive at Echo Rock. This scenic vista is located on a cliff perched over the Palmaghatt Ravine, across from Patterson’s Pellet. On a clear day, there are spectacular views from here. Our return trip will follow the same route, but we will make our way around the east side of Lake Minnewaska, enjoying the views around the Lake. In the event of snow, this hike may be cancelled or rescheduled to another location. If ski trails are being groomed, this outing location will change. Meet at the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center.

Registration Required

Pre-registration is required by calling the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center at 845-255-0752.
