    The focal point of this region is Harriman State Park - the second largest state park in New York - it is known as a haven for hikers with over 220 miles of hiking trails and woods roads.  The park is also known for it's 32 lakes, multiple cascading streams, numerous old iron mines, fantastic and varied terrain and great scenery.  We will hike for approximately 3 hours over a variety of terrain - we will have plenty of breaks along the way to enjoy the views and take pictures.  An alfresco picnic lunch at a scenic location will also be part of the day's activities.  The second part of the day will consist of visiting two vineyards along the celebrated Shawangunk Wine Trail to sample some fine local hand crafted wines.  What a better to end the day and relax than with a glass of wine.  It's a perfect escape from our normal everyday....and who doesn't need that?!  Trip includes all transportation costs, licensed guides, park fees, continental breakfast, picnic lunch and wine tasting at two vineyards.

    All trip details and final trip itinerary will be e-mailed to all registered guests the week of the trip date.

    Hi Judith-

    We'll leave at around 7:45 and it's about 1hr to 1hr15min drive depending on what park we go to (probably Harriman or Black Rock). All trip info will be sent out via e-mail the week of the trip to folks who have registered. We send out meeting location and time for the self drivers in that e-mail. Ignore the ref. about 'yoga mat' - that is for our hike/yoga/wine trip - good catch - that's what happens when you cut&paste without proof reading. :-) Hope you can join us...

    THx, Jim
