Black Creek Preserve

We'll be hiking/walking at the Black Creek Preserve, in Esopus, NY (not far from our last hiking location actually).

This will be a shorter than usual hike - but has been requested by several of our members.

Because of the lack of parking at the site, we will be meeting at the Esopus Fire Department parking lot (the same site as last week's Shaupeneak Ridge hike).  The lot is on the corner of Route 9W & Old Post Road in Esopus, NY.  We can car pool or walk from there to the hike (its 0.5 miles from the parking lot to the hike).

    By the way, I'm back down to +1. Apparently the 14-yr-old is not a morning hike person... he's more of a "2pm and I'm bored" kind of guy.

    I just tried to change my RSVP to +2, but +1 was all it would allow me. Can I not bring two with me?

    • Paul C.

      I'm somewhat more concerned about parking than about the absolute number of people. If you have more than a +1, just let me know either on the group page or via email.

    if some of us wanted to extend the hike, is it easily doable by just hitting one of the other trails and looping back to starting point?

    June 11

    • Betsy

      One idea would be to turn around and loop back once you reach the yellow trail again. There are plenty of parks where you have to take the same trail out as you did in... no reason why you couldn't do the red and blue trails, then turn around and do them in the reverse once you get back to yellow if you wanted to stay out longer.

      Thanks, Betsy and Paul Short or long, it will be beautiful and nice to see all of you

  • Judy D.

    Hi Paul, it seems this might be a shorter walk and for a beginner?

    June 9

    • Betsy

      This is a really good one for a beginner. it's got ups and downs throughout the trail, but no really huge inclines. Of the hikes I've taken my son on (he's not a huge fan of hiking) this one's his favorite.

      thanks for the tip betsy

      June 10

  • Betsy

    Yay, love, love, love this place! I'm bringing my son, so if anyone else has a teenager who's interested in hiking, there's already one going =)
