We have rescheduled the hike as many people said they cannot make it due to the Memorial Day Weekend. The new date is Saturday June 1st.
We are starting this season with our favorite hike: Millbrook Ridge Trail at The Mohonk Preserve.
Scenic Intermediate Hike, Millbrook Ridge Trail -Minnewaska Lake - Awosting Falls - Trapps Road
Duration: 5-7 hours
Distance: 11 miles
Difficulty level: Moderate
There is NO charge for the hike. The Mohonk Preserve entry fee for hikers is $15.
The hike starts at West Trapps Trailhead. It goes up and down until it reaches Minnewaska Lake where we have our lunch. After the lake we go to see the waterfalls and go back on Trapps Road which is flat.
Option 1: Drive to the hike at no charge. We will meet at 9:45 am at West Trapps Trailhead and we start the hike at 10 am.
Option 2: We have a 15-passenger van. We will meet at 7:45 am at the South West corner of 9th Ave and W 35th Street (http://goo.gl/maps/SVp8s) in Manhattan. The cost for the roundtrip ride with the van is $45/person. Please contact Baris [masked]) or Kateryna [masked]) if you want to be in the van [masked] or [masked] ). You can make a PayPal, Zelle or Venmo payment. Please include your full name and mobile number.
It is very scenic, diverse, a bit steep in the beginning and then gets easier and easier. It takes 3.5 - 4.5 hours to get to the lake. Then we have lunch at the lake and come back on flat Trapps Road (about 2.5 hours).
Lunch by Lake Minnewaska
After the hike we will enjoy beers and food at Bacchus that offers over 400 kinds of beers from all over the world.
Looking forward to hiking with you all.
