Time to re-visit one of the most popular spots in the area. We will take the traditional route up and then branch off and circle back down to the right so that we come down on the side via the Cornish estate and back to through the tunnel. Just enough to give you a workout but a little more than the traditional breakneck hike. I am not looking to do this one at lightning speed and weather permitting I do plan to linger at select spots and soak in the views.
Estimate distance - In the 4 to 4.5 mile range - assuming we don't go on a random bushwhack - (These things do happen on occasion but not likely here.)
Please check with me if this is your first hike with the group. I just want to make sure that this is within your comfort zone.
This hike features rock scrambles and an elevation gain of 1000 feet in the first 1/3 of the hike.
Post Hike Meal - Since it is Easter, my guess it Whistling Willies (Re-opened) as we should finish up within the post lunch-pre dinner hour.
GPS Trail Head Coordinates: 41º 26.59′N, 73º 58.68′W
can someone plese confirm those coordinates?
Well behaved dogs welcome.
Please remember to dress in layers and bring enough water for this hike. Sturdy hiking boots are recommended.
Will update with phone number and details as we get closer to the date.
If light rain is in the forecast, I will switch the event to Fahnestock.
