Hike the Three Lakes Trail in Fahnestock State Park

Hike is appropriate for a beginner in reasonably good physical shape.  We will use the Old Mine Railroad and Three Lakes trails to make a loop which includes the John Allen and Hidden ponds.

Round trip distance:  about 5 miles

Elevation change:  not much

Terrain:  easy

We'll hike at a relaxed pace - no one will be left behind.

Fahnestock State Park lies across the border of southern Dutchess County and northern Putnam County on the east side of the Hudson.

We'll meet at the Pelton Pond parking area and carpool to the trail head, which has limited roadside parking and is not easy to spot.

Directions to the Pelton Pond parking area:

Do not attempt to use GPS for the Fahnestock address in Carmel.  This address is not in the park.  Do not use the map link above or the GPS coordinates on it.

What to bring: water, snacks, lunch

Cancellation info: If I need to cancel I'll send email the night before.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
