This is one we have done in the past. It is an intermediate beginner hike with a final distance in the 5 mile range. There are some light hills on this which we will hit in the first part of the hike.
Meetup Addess - Lewisboro Town Park - 1079 Route 35, South Salem, NY 10590
If you are coming from exit 6 off of 684 in Katonah - Stay on Route 35 - through Cross River - (do not go to Ward Pound Ridge) - Entrance to Lewisboro Town park is past the light of 35 and 121 - about 5 minute drive straight on 35 on your right. When you enter the parking area - keep going until you see the pool and ballfield. The meetup location is up the hill (on your right) above the ballfield.
Please dress in layers and bring plenty of water. I suggest a change of footwear as we may hit some muddy spots on the way back. We will have time to enjoy a light snack at an area with picnic tables. With the cooler temps, we will not linger very long.
I have the last of my yummy bannana bread to share.
Cell service approaching Cross River is spotty. If for whatever reason you think you will be late it is better to call me prior to 10:15 or 10:20 as I may not get your message.
Time for hike - A lot will depend on the actual start time, weather and trail conditions. If we start by 11pm, we should be off-trail no later than 3pm. Likely earlier if cold.
