Popolopen Torne

  • Nov 28, 2013 · 9:00 AM

Please join us for a Thanksgiving morning moderate-to-strenuous hike up Popolopen Torne, a rugged peak just south of West Point. Beautiful views of the Hudson River valley. Rocky trails and one long sustained hill climb with some rock scrambling required. We should be done in plenty of time for you to get started on that sumptuous Thanksgiving dinner (or brave the shopping-mall crowds in order to get me that extra-special holiday present).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Difficulty: Moderate-to-strenuous. Some steep exposed rock scrambling.

Distance: 4 miles
