"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.

Diner: I need to know if you are going out to eat at the start of the hike. We have to call in a reservation before the hike.

Terrain: Easy to moderate carriage trails on rolling hills.

Distance: 4+ miles **

Time: 1  1/2+ hours**

**Longer option: After, 1  1/4 hrs group often splits into 2 groups:

1  1/2hr/4+ mile regular group

2 hr/5-6 mile longer option group.

Both groups eat together.

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.

    Nice to get out, even for a short period of time. Good spirits and attitude danced between the rain drops.

    We were able to cover 2.2 miles, enjoy some stimulating conversation and take an early shower all at the same time - not bad at all.

    Hoping to make the hike tomorrow - on Tuesdays I work until about 4:15, so could get there if there are no traffic problems on 287. Wait, did I say "no traffic problems on 287"? Hahaha

    Hi - I could not make the Tuesday/ Wednesday hike but I would like to be a part of your group. I'm not interested in hiking for hours and hours but a good 3 - 4 mile hike sounds healthy and good. I can probably push beyond that but little by little. I am very strong and very determined but I have many things I love to do and this would be just one of them.

    I am so grateful for the beautiful environment in which I live and I want to know more and more about it. The Rockefellers have shared so much for all of us to enjoy. I am a very sociable person and I love to share happiness with others - any and all others!...Susan

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
