Hike the Shaupeneak Ridge (near Esopus)

  • January 30, 2014 · 9:30 AM
  • See link below for directions to trail head

This hike is in the vicinity of Esopus (Ulster County), which is itself south of Kingston on Rte 9W.  The attractions are Louisa Pond, a viewpoint towards the Catskills and another towards the Hudson River, and a waterfall.  We will hike about 4.5 miles, part of which is relatively level and some of which involves a descent and then an ascent on the return.  The hilly piece takes us to the waterfall.  Information about the hike area and a map of the trails can be found at these two links:

    Hey Jeff, I'm so disappointed...I have to cancel because I have a nasty cold. Looking forward to the next hike! Would love to go for a hike to Jacob's Ladder if you ever have the urge to check that out. Not good for a winter hike, lots of ice.

    I only have Yaktrax Walks for my boots. Would those be sufficient for the Shaupeneah Ridge hike on January 30th ?

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.
