March Minnewaska Madness - Upper Level Intermediate to Advanced Hike

  • Mar 30, 2013 · 9:00 AM

For this one you must be someone I have hiked with in the past or someone who is active with a known hiking group. We will do something in the 8-12 range with all the things I know everyone hates. Views, Rock scrambles and waterfalls.

There is an $8.00 fee per vehicle but we can organize a car pool from the new Paltz park n ride if there is interest.

$1.00 Meetup fee for this event

Well behaved dogs are welcome

Will update with additional details as we get closer to the date

    • Cristina

      Ana, I can drive we can meet at the location suggested by Steve, below carpool off I-84 at Ludingtonville Road (exit 17) - There is a lot 1 min up the road on your left when you make your first right at stop sign) only we need to decide a time. Contact me to work out details. Thanks!

      March 29, 2013

    • Ana

      Hi Christina, thank you so much for the offer but that location is rather far, as I come from Tarrytown. Will try to see if I can carpool from a different spot.

      March 29, 2013

    Mountain Brauhaus for 4pm reservation. The Gate at Minnewaska does not open until 9AM so my guess is that we will not hit the trail until 9:20 or 9:30. We will start with the Mossy Glenn trail and then we have some choices once we hit Blueberry Run - Will send out e-mail update with phone number before 7PM tomorrow

    Hi Patrizia - Can carpool off I-84 at Ludingtonville Road (exit 17) - There is a lot 1 min up the road on your left when you make your first right at stop sign

    March 27, 2013

    • Patrizia

      I am familiar with the lot. Yes, that definitely works for me. Thank you!

      March 27, 2013

  • Steve

    Hi Nancy - Since the main gate does not open until 9AM, my guess is that we will not be on the trail until 9:20. I'd like to finish between 3 and 4pm. Going over route options tonight and will try to come up with 2-3 options based on trail availability. There is still snow in this area and temps are expected to warm up heading into the weekend. Dogs must be on a leash not more than 6 feet.

    March 26, 2013

  • Nancy

    How long is the hike & must dogs be on leashes?

    I am looking for a way to get there from the city....anyone driving through or nearby? Or a train I could take to get close? Thanks!!

    March 26, 2013

    • Rob

      Hi Chris. I can pick you up at the Beacon station at 8:10. We'll be about 45 mins from the trailhead and it's a 9am start so you'd have to take the 6:10 out of GCS (ouch). email me if you're interest.

      March 26, 2013

  • Sandy C

    I think the gate opens at 9am, so assuming we'll meet up top thereafter. Any idea of the route?
