Sam's Point to Minnewaska Ridge Top One-Way. A Nature Conservancy Hike

This is a Nature Conservancy run hike.  They do it once a year at leaf-peeoping time.

To secure a spot, you must register via email with Heidi Wagner of The Nature Conservancy at:

[masked]

RSVP here on the Meetup Site only to let other Meetup hikers know you are going!

Note: parking at Sam's Point will be free for participants, but you will have to kick in $15 towards the cost of the bus ride from Sam's Point over to Minnewaska.  This will alleviate the need to set up a car shuttle and save time at the end retrieving cars.

Description:

Come along on THE NATURE CONSERVANCY'S  annual "through" hike, to view the Shawangunk Ridge in autumn splendor. Meet at the Sam's Point Conservation Center at 8 am, where a bus will transport you to Minnewaska State Park Preserve. Then return to Sam's Point along a variety of scenic trails. A $15.00 fee will be collected to help defray transportation costs. The parking fee will be waived for participants. Please wear appropriate footwear and bring plenty of water, lunch, snacks, rain gear, extra layers and, of course, your camera! Sign up early. Group will be limited to 15. Hike leaders: Gino Carfora and Joe Sweeney

For experienced hikers only. Difficult. 10 miles.

    Just a reminder that you must email Heidi at the Nature Conservancy to confirm that you'll attend. Without confirmation from each of us, the shuttle bus won't happen.

      Yes, then she will email you back that you are confirmed. Also, since group size is limited, please let Heidi know ASAP if you change your mind so others can come!
