Election Day Hike Vrooman's Nose

This hike is a little bit of a drive from Albany but is totally worth it! Lets hope for some dry, sunny weather. This hike is 1.8 miles long with a 600 foot elevation gain. The hike up Vroman's Nose give some breathtaking views of the Schoharie Valley. I would describe this hike as easy because it is so short, but there are some steep sections to be aware of.

Directions: Take 88 to exit 22 and take a left on route 145. Take this to the center of Middleburgh and take a right on route 30. Take your first right onto Mill Valley Road (This is what Mapquest has it labeled, however my guidebooks say West Middleburgh Rd. I will try to update exactly, but just be aware it is the first right). The trailhead will be on the left approx. 0.6 miles down. This is a residential neighborhood and the parking is limited here, If anyone can carpool please do so. We will be meeting at the L.L. Bean Colonie Center parking lot at 9:30a if anyone is interested in carpooling from there.

Please dress in layers. We will hike rain or shine.

Minimum age is 8 (8-15 yrs must have a participating adult with them, 16-17 yrs must have a parent/guardian sign participant agreement but do not need to attend)

please be dressed for the weather, we will go rain/snow

dress in layers

wear appropriate hiking/snowshoeing footwear

please bring water, snacks and any personal medicines you may need

Please be on time, this hike leaves promptly at 11a.m.

    Heidi I apologize, I pulled this up from an older posting and I didnt read it thoroughly. For a small group like this we will be meeting at the trailhead for Vrooman's nose. Also, this hike leaves at 10:30a not 11. The weather looks nice, should be a great hike. See you all then!
