Tallman Mountain State Park Hike

Tallman Mountain State Park (Rockland Co, NY). 11:15 am. 7 miles. We will hike through the Park and view the berms and salt marsh. We will then walk the mile-long Piermont pier halfway across the Hudson! Trails include the Long Path. Bring lunch and water. Adverse conditions will alter the route. Don't worry, this will be a moderate paced fun hike, a little snow won't bother us. We meet in front of 450 Piermont Ave. (building with mural), corner of Tate and Piermont Ave. in Piermont NY. Park down Gair street in municipal lot D. Great directions can be found at Turning Point Directions. They will take you just a half block away from our meeting spot. Leader: John P. Jurasek:[masked] (no calls after 10pm) or [masked].

Public transportation from the city is available on the 10:40 AM Rockland Coaches 9A bus from the George Washington Bridge Bus Terminal to meet us in Piermont by 11:17. Tell the driver you are going to Piermont, NY. The bus will drop you off right in front of 450 Piermont Ave. (building with mural) on the corner of Tate and Piermont Aves. where we will be waiting. You can take the 9:15 Bus from Port Authority Bus Terminal to arrive in Piermont at 10:17 but you will be an hour early. There are shops in town to pass the time.

    It was a great hike. The weather held up and it was not too cold. The walk out to the middle of the Hudson was surrealistic with the ice flows and the fog.

    We had a wonderful day hiking 6.6 miles averaging 2.3 mph. While we only gained 350 feet of elevation and were just around 200 feet above sea level, we still had some great views. The group was great and the views from the pier were surreal. A very unique experience. Afterwards, the food, drinks, and company at Piermont Pub were great as well. Thanks to all and hope to see you on the next one!

    Hi! Is anyone driving from Astoria or Manhattan, with an extra seat available? It would be nice to join a car & pitch in for gas :). I can't check email at work so I might not respond right away, just to let you know.

      Hi Suzanne - Thanks for responding! (sorry I was unable to respond until I got home just now!) ... I guess at this point I'll hopefully see you there since it's a bit late to arrange this.

    Can I bring my well behaved canine?

      We plan to bring our well-behaved canine's too!

    Due to tomorrow's weather (30 degrees, very light snow during the hike) and a hard pack of about 5 inches of preexisting snow, I am modifying the hike to try to stay on dry or minimally covered surfaces. This may drastically shorten the hike and/or keep us to paved surfaces including mostly roadway. There is a possibility that we may make two hikes where one group may use crampons or snow shoes. This can not be guaranteed.

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.
