I am completing my eighth annual summer series of evening dog friendly hikes. The last hike in the series is:
7) Monday, August 4. This is my Trail Angel hike to Wildcat Shelter. We will meet at 4:45 PM at the Bellvale Creamery ice cream stand on NY 17A, just beyond the top of the hill, west of the community of Greenwood Lake, NY. It is a relatively level hike northbound along the AT. However, we do go at a steady 2 mph pace. We will meet thru-hikers and offer water. I bring water, soda and other beverages, all of you bring snacks and fruit to share with the hikers. They have ravenous appetites and love the food & drink offerings. We hike 5-6:30 PM, 2.5 miles north. Hang out at shelter to 7:00 PM and then hike back. At end of the hike we stop for ice cream. We shall finish around 8:30 PM. Hikes will be cancelled if a thunderstorm watch or warning is in effect for Orange County for the time of the hike (5-8 PM).
This hike being a dog-friendly hike requires owners to bring snacks and water for their dogs. Please keep them out of the shelter. Aaron (askus3) [masked]
