Most everyone knows about the Breakneck Ridge climb, you step from the road almost right onto the scramble. Climb up for magnificent views, then climb up higher for more, repeat this again. What a great way to spend a Sunday morning.
After a shorter loop then usual we will be heading to make a 12 - 1pm lunch with Buddha at the BAUS Monastery in nearby Carmel NY, which is vegan and they ask a $6 donation, and tour the grounds, also home to the largest (indoor) Buddha statue in the world. It is a interesting and fun place to explore on it's own, but no dogs permitted, not even nice ones.
Event look familiar? I scheduled this one once before but could not attend due to starting a new job.
The Hike: expected to be no more then 1000 ft, but Breakneck has scrambles, and a 4 mile loop to make sure we are not late for lunch with Buddha. Depending on timing we may scramble back down or take a alternate loop back.
Afterwords: Lunch at BAUS monastery and touring their grounds.
