Beginners and Sociables Evening hike: Oscawana park and island

  • April 23, 2014 · 6:45 PM
  • Oscawana park and island

Let's explore Oscawana park with its ruins from the McAndrews estate: http://www.mcandrewsestate.org/ Trails have only recently been added over the last couple of years in the area, and it still remains a hidden gem of history.  If time and the weather allow we will finish off our evening with a loop on Oscawana island with a sunset/dusk exploration overlooking the Hudson river.  Sunset is at 7.45 pm.  We will likely walk back to the cars during dusk so I would recommend bringing a flashlight/headlamp

Hike Details

Distance: ~3 miles

Terrain: Generally flat with some small hills.   We may explore a little off trail at times to see the ruins in the estate.

Pace: Relaxed/Moderate

Dogs: Friendly, well behaved dogs are welcome, but should be on a leash. Owners should find out and respect the rules of the park, and follow requests made by the organizers. Please make sure you bring water for your dog.

What to bring and wear

Wear hiking boots or sneakers, and bring a flashlight.

Directions

Take Route 9 to the Montrose/ Bucannan exit. Furnace Dock Road is just south of the exit on Route 9A. Take Furnace Dock Road 1.1 miles to the parking area.  Parking is somewhat limited so park close together and double park with others in the group.  if necessary I believe parking along the road is also ok.

Cancellation notices: I will be monitoring the weather prior to the hike and if conditions are not good the hike is subject to cancellation. Regardless of the weather, please check your email/site prior to leaving for the hike, cancellation notices will be sent prior to 5 pm if required.

Liability Waiver: This is a social group of like minded individuals that enjoy hiking, it is not organized by a professional hiker. Hiking or outdoor activities have inherent risks. Your participation in our hikes or other events could be dangerous and can result in serious injury, medical emergency, even death.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
