This vigorous springtime weekend of exploration promises to be an opportunity to fully experience the spirit of nature and the culture of the Hudson River Valley. Includes Slabsides events, hiking the woods of Esopus, and camping (with bathroom and shower). The weekend affords social interaction and instills a sense of gratitude for our healthy beings.
The weekend begins setting up camp (meet 9:00 Holy Cross parking lot) and then hiking to Slabsides for a day of open house events and hiking. Saturday night we camp – no facilities are provided other than flat ground and a bathroom/shower. Encampment concludes on Sunday morning; optional Sunday afternoon activities.
This activity is suitable for beginners with strong hiking capability: 12 mile hike on rolling terrain. To register for the weekend, contact Skip Doyle at [masked]. Suggested donation for the weekend is $50. (Payable upon arrival.)
