After Work Hike at Peebles Island State Park

Peebles Island State Park is at the confluence of the Hudson and Mohawk Rivers. It offers spectacular river and rapids views.  We will be following the yellow perimeter trail (approximately 1.8 miles and the connector trail .55 miles)  The outing will last about 1.5 hours.  This is an easy hike.

Peebles Island is also the headquarters of the Bureau of Historic Sites and Bureau of Historic Preservation Field Services. The staff provide technical services, such as record maintenance, analysis of artifacts, and preparation of publications, exhibits and audio visual programs for the 35 historic sites maintained by State Parks.

    Hi Folks! We limit our group sizes for two reasons. The first is for safety. Our leads are all CPR/First Aid certified and are responsible for the group they take out. We limit the size of the group so it will maintain a safe ratio of participants to leader in the event of an emergency.
    Second, we here at L.L.Bean believe in and follow the Leave No Trace protocols for Outdoor Ethics. Limiting the group size minimizes our impact on the environment, wildlife, and any other visitors we may encounter on our outing. For more info on Leave No Trace visit their website: www.lnt.org

    Nancy, some parks have limits to the number of people in a group. When I lead hikes in the Catskills, I prefer fewer than the allowed limit. The more people, the more chance for different skill levels, then your group are scattered over too wide of a distance. A leader likes to keep everyone in sight if possible. Of course, there could be two leaders with a hike like this - each going in the opposite direction to keep the group size within the limit.

    How/why do you have a waiting list for a hike?? Why don't you allow everyone to join? Not like the outdoors has limited size?? I'm just curious...

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.
