We will be going to Minnewaska State Park and seeing both Lake Awosting and Lake Minnewaska. The hike from the parking to Lake Awosting is approximately 9 miles round trip. The park should be beautiful as always, but the leaves will have started changing and be even more impressive.
There is an NYS State Park $8 fee per car for entry (cars with a current Empire Passport sticker enter free).
If you sign up and end up being unable to make it, please change your RSVP as much in advance as you can.
Note: We are going to meet at the main Minnewaska parking (5281 Route 44-55, Kerhonkson, NY - just past New Paltz), not the Lake Awosting Parking so as to have a longer trip.
Note: Meeting Location
We'll be meeting in the upper parking lot at Minnewaska State Park. Look for my (Paul's) car, a bright blue Prius C (looks like this).
What to bring
This isn't a marathon, but its not a short hike either. Bring a decent amount of water (I'd recommend at least a liter), some bug spray, sunblock, and lunch. We'll stop for lunch when we arrive at the lake.
