Announcing a new Meetup for BLAZE >> Backpacking Gay Men of NYC!
What: Schunemunk Mountain Day Hike
When: December 13,[masked]:00 AM
Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
Ready for a hike before the year's end? Need to get out to the nature? Sign up for this 10+ mile day hike to the Schunemunk Mountain, just about 60 miles north of New York.
The Schunemunk Mountain hike - the loop (the longest way) is 9-11 miles with a good 1,500' of elevation gain. We will visit the summit of Schunemunk and the Megaliths, where there are near 360 degree views of the Highlands, Hudson River, the Kittatinny Ridge, the 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 some water. Be prepared for rain/wind/snow/cold. Good boots are a must. 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, December 13, and arriving back to NYC 6 - 8 p.m. We may stop for dinner somewhere on the way back if there is interest. I'll increase the number of participants as we get another driver(s) signed up. So please do sign up for the waiting list.
