Join us for an outstanding point to point hike between High Falls and Kingston, mostly using old railroad rights of way, a total of about 16 miles.
We will make this one our next theme hike! Those who got one of the black tuxedo jackets on the recent Buckettfest hike, BRING IT! I have a few more small ones for $2 each. Everyone else, if you want in on the silliness, wear a back jacket! This is going to be a lot of fun!
Meeting point will be at the High Falls parking lot in High Falls NY, which is just east of the bridge over the Rondout Creek, at following coordinates:
Longitude: 74° 7'56.83"W
The hike will take us mostly along scenic rail trails, a lot of which is the Hurley Rail Trail. There will also be a little bit of road walking along mostly pleasant back roads, but a little along the Kingston waterfront.
This promises to be an outstanding route with constantly changing scenery. We will be along the Hudson, the Rondout Creek, along abandoned track still in place as trail, a bit of the streets of Kingston, then along rail trail in town and then through pastoral settings and mixed hardwood forests on the way to High Falls, which is a lovely site on the creek at our end point.
