Schunemunk Mountain Day Hike

The late spring is here, trees have leaves, sun is shining, and I can't wait to get out of the city. Let's hike! We will hike around Schunemunk Mountain, just about 60 miles north of New York.

The Schunemunk Mountain loop (the longest way) is an 11 mile long hike with a good 1,500' of elevation gain. We will visit the summit of Schunemunk and the Megaliths, where we'll have near 360 degree views of the Highlands, Hudson River, Kittatinny Ridge, Shawangunks and the Catskills. From the summit we will head back down either by the Jessup and Trestle trail or via the Dark Hollow trail/Sweet Clover trail.

This is a strenuous hike (1,360'+ vertical rise, some rocky terrain and scrambling). Take with you a lunch snack and 2 liters of water. Be prepared for hot weather, but also possible rain, wind and cold. Good boots are a must since ground could be wet. Other gear questions will be answered individually via e-mail.

We should be leaving New York City in cars around 8 a.m. on Sunday, June 1, and arriving back to NYC at 7 p.m. or later. We may stop for dinner on the way back if there is interest.

The number of participants is limited only by the number of available cars. Sign up on the waiting list and I'll increase the number of participants as we get another driver(s) signed up.

    If you haven't signed up for a carpool yet, do so by the end of Friday. Instructions were sent via e-mail - check your spam folder if you don't have them. If you don't sign up by Friday evening, we may not have a spot for you.

    I can rent a car or share costs. I'm coming from Astoria so it's easy to get a cheaper car at LGA for me. Can also meet for a pickup anywhere along the day if other people have room open.

      I have already sent to you an e-mail with carpooling details in the morning. Please check your spam folder. Thanks.

      Yes, cars are available. I'll send a spreadsheet to sign up for carpool a few days before the hike. Until then everyone just patiently wait :-)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
