HIking at Clark Reservation State Park

I am back fresh from Hiking the “Camino De Santiago” in France and Spain and ready to get out locally and do a few hikes. This will be a relatively not too hard hike as we will hike about 3 hours then stop for lunch with a sammich that you can bring (optional) if you wish before heading back home. Please arrive in time to hike by 9:30.

Clark Reservation State Park is a geologic wonder of the last ice age and a botanist's paradise. The park's natural features include rugged cliffs and rocky outcrops, woodland and meadow, a wetland and a glacial plunge basin lake in which the surface waters and bottom waters do not mix. Fishermen can catch pickerel, bullheads and sunfish; while birdwatchers may observe cedar waxwings, kingfishers and woodpeckers. The Nature Center is open seasonally from mid-May through Labor Day.  Guided nature walks leave from the Nature Center building, which also offers numerous exhibits. Hikers may choose from five trails, including the cliff trail, which has a ledge overlook 175 feet above the water.

Due to the many cracks in the rocks, this hike is not suitable for dogs. Please note: terrain is steep in places - walking poles recommended.

Here's a link to a trail map: http://nysparks.com/parks/attachments/ClarkReservationTrailMap.pdf
We will be hiking with another Meetup group whose members are always loads of fun!!!!
