    It would be better to meet us at the Poughkeepsie Metro-North station. There is plenty of parking and it is free on the weekends.

    Hi Gerald, I was thinking about driving there. Can I meet the group at the foot of the bridge?

    We should be back at the station for the 3:54 train to Grand Central. We will have an optional dinner at a good Japanese restaurant at the station. You should be able to catch the 5:54 train after the dinner.

    Do you have a rough time of when this hike will end? What time will we be able to catch the train back to NYC? Thanks.
