    "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...

    The hot weather for tomorrow has made me change my mind.

    June 23, 2013

  • Nicole A.

    Plans changed. See you next time!

    I'd love to join this hike but I work 9 to 5! Wish it started at 6.

      oops didn't mean to start a storm in a happy group

      June 24, 2013

    • Dave

      I knew you were trouble...

    Hope to make the next one.

    Guess I'll weigh in on the time issue; I prefer the 5 PM start as well. I'd say for those that can't attend there seems to be several later hikes, 6-7:30 starts I've seen.

    June 24, 2013

  • Dave

    Sorry, I have a previous commitment on Monday evenings at 7:00pm. I can't really start any later.

    • Meryl S.

      I'm not sure if I can make it tomorrow - have to work, but will let you know as it gets closer if I can break away.

      June 23, 2013

  • Kathleen

    I m new so I don't want to weigh in too strongly but I do prefer 5

    June 23, 2013

  • TERRY R.

    5pm is good for me. I would have to wait for an hour and fifteen minutes after work. Changing to 6 does not appeal to me at all.

    June 23, 2013

  • Clovia N.

    I'd love to go - wouldn't there be room for all to hike and no waitlist necessary?

    June 22, 2013

  • TERRY R.

    Going to try to make this one !
