Nyack Beach State Park and Rockland Lake Combo as Requested!

    Monday is forecast to be a balmy 50 degrees so lets’ take advantage of the milder weather and get those bodies moving!   Come revisit one of Rocklands’ gems; Nyack Beach State Park and enjoy spectacular Hudson River views and the off season free parking! If we’re lucky we may get to hear the “songs of the ice”  shifting on the Hudson!

  This will be about a 3 hour hike at a moderate steady pace covering approximately 8 miles on paved, crushed gravel and woods trails with several moderate inclines and one short steep one. This will include a few breaks to take in the views.  We will start out following along the Hudson River toward the Haverstraw trail down by the water and than loop back up toward Rockland Lake where we often get to see the resident Guinea hens! From here we will head down for the Rockland Lake loop(early out here if you choose not to do Rockland Lake) back up to the Fire station then return to Nyack Beach Park!   

Water resistant Hiking SHOES, boots, good supportive walking shoes or SNEAKERS  ARE ALL YOU NEED(hiking poles could be handy for the few inclines) and layers, hats and gloves for the changeable weather and cooler air by the river.  WATER is a must, along with snacks and don’t forget those cameras for the many great photo opts! Inclement weather cancels. Always check the day of an event for any possible changes.  Scroll down for directions.

Optional dinner at a nearby venue.

MEET US IN FRONT OF THE REST AREA BLDG.

    It was a perfect day to enjoy the fresh air and a new, beautiful, long route with some old and new friends and some potential new members! Thanks again to our great photographers who add so much to these events!

    I didn't make Rockland Lake but Nyack Beach State Park was beautiful with the ice sheets lining the shore of the Hudson.

    Would you do this on a weekend sometime? Or maybe I shorter hike one could manage on a lunch hour. I work in the Nyack area sometimes.
    Have fun.
