    "At Pocantico Hills...where the fine views invite the soul...I have spent many delightful hours, studying the beautiful views, the trees and fine landscape effects of that very interesting section of the Hudson River..." Mr. John D. Rockefeller, Sr. Random Reminiscences - 1908  (Photo, Tiffany Black)

    Contact: Feel free to post a question to the site or send me an email.  I'll send out a group email with my cell number 24 hours ahead of the hike so you can contact me for cancellations and directions.


    Terrain: Easy to moderate, mainly rolling hills.

    Distance: Something about an hour and a half. Approximately 4 miles.

    Pace: Moderate to brisk. Although this is a beginner hike, and nobody gets left behind, we walk at a very brisk pace! Please assess your ability to keep this pace before signing up.

    Meeting location: We will meet at the the MAIN Parking lot for the Rockefeller State Park Preserve.

    The Parking lot is located on the south side of Route 117 approximately halfway between Route 9A to the East and Route 9 to the West. There are gates and stone walls at the entrance, a large horse-trailer parking lot, a little toll booth, a visitors center and a bathroom building.

    Meet on the benches near the restroom.

    Cancellation notices: I will cancel by 4:00pm if the weather looks dicey or if the hiking conditions are not great.

    Pets: Friendly, well behaved dogs are welcome. The park requires dogs to be leashed at all times.  It is possible that we will encounter one or more horses with riders or carriages.

    Hike Description: The usual...

    Liability Waiver: This is a fun and interesting group of people that enjoy hiking and socializing, it is not organized by a professional hiker. 

    Hiking or outdoor activities have inherent risks. Your participation in our hikes or other events could be dangerous and can result in serious injury, medical emergency, even death.

    You agree to participate in this event completely at your own risk and to take full responsibility for your own safety and well being, including those of your guests.

    I don't think I'll be home in time for Monday's hike so I have scheduled this hike for Tuesday. After this week, I will be back on the Monday schedule.
