Beginner/First timer Hike ! 4 miles

Let's welcome spring with an easy hike to welcome new people into this AWESOME sport.

 

 

 

 

 

If you are an advanced, or even intermediate hiker, you might find this hike boring. Unless you are looking to unwind and relax with a casual paced hike.

Kids are welcome on this hike but keep the following in mind:
-they must be old enough to walk on their own (I would say 5 yo and up)
-they must walk by you at all times

Dogs are welcome too.

GPS address : 1004 Arden Valley Rd, Tuxedo, NY

We'll meet at the parking lot at 7 am. The group will start hiking at 7:15 with whoever is present. We'll hike 2 miles to a rock formation called Lemon Squeezer, where we'll find a spot to take a break and grab a snack for a few minutes. On the way there we'll go through uneven terrain, uphills and downhills. We'll pass by Island Pond and a few views as well. After the break at the Lemon Squeezer, we'll come back to to the parking lot.
This hike will take place on the Appalachian Trail.

Make sure you bring at least 1 ltr of water and a snack, wear comfortable shoes (walking or running shoes) , and that you are dress properly for the weather.

Our Mission

Hiking on backcountry trails helps many people re-connect with nature and with places within themselves that get obscured in the daily hustle and bustle. A few days in the solitude of the trail re-grounds them and helps preserve their mental health.

For people battling mental illness, however, the path to mental health is rarely so simple. Mental illness affects 1 out of 4 families in the United States, leaving those who suffer from it and their families searching for answers, cures and treatments that will allow them to experience the simple joy of living.

The mission of HIKE for Mental Health is to

  1. Increase public awareness of the challenges and suffering faced by those afflicted by mental illness and their families.
  2. Increase public appreciation for and responsible use of wilderness trails.
  3. Raise funds, principally by coordinating fundraising wilderness hikes, for distribution to nonprofit organizations committed to (a) preventing and alleviating the pain caused by mental illness or (b) maintaining and preserving wilderness trails.

In distributing its net proceeds, HIKE for Mental Health will direct

  • Eighty percent to scientific research to prevent, cure, or treat mental illness and
  • Twenty percent to help preserve wilderness trails.

In 2012 HIKE for Mental Health has selected The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation (BBRF) as its principal beneficiary. Support for wilderness trails will be split between the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) and the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference (NYNJTC). These organizations are top-notch, well-run nonprofit groups that, like HIKE for Mental Health, know how to get the most bang for their buck.
