KERHONKSON – FREE* Morning Multiple Scenic Views Hike at Minnewaska


Hiking with Views at Minnewaska



Sunday, September 15, 2019


9:30 am – 12:30 pm



Join Laura Conner, Environmental Educator, on a guided hike to see all the stunning views from the numerous scenic vistas along the East side of Lake Minnewaska. Our first stop will be the last remaining historic summerhouse gazebo, which sits perched above the Lake. From here, we’ll continue our walk to reach the site of the former, historic Cliffhouse Hotel. Marvel at the spectacular views that former guests would have had across Lake Minnewaska to the distant Catskill Mountains. Next, we’ll drop down to the Beacon Hill Footpath, which offers a broad vista of the Wallkill Valley including distant views of Storm King and Break Neck Mountains, as well as the iconic stone tower, Skytop, to the North. The last leg of our journey includes another cliff edge viewpoint that offers scenic vistas of the Catskill Mountains and the Dickie Barre area. This modest hike, which follows along a combination of carriage roads and a footpath, is approximately two-and-a- half miles long and does include some hills and rocky sections of footpath. Your guide stays with the group the entire trip, offering answers to your questions about the cultural and natural history of this special Park Preserve.




Pre-registration is required by calling Minnewaska at 845-255-0752.

Meet at the Minnewaska Nature Center.
