Hike the Mossy Glen Trail in Minnewaska State Park

  • Aug 24, 2014 · 10:00 AM
  • See "Directions"­ in the text below

Beginner hike

Distance: 3.5 miles round trip

Terrain: Moderate

Elevation gain: nothing significant

The Mossy Glen Trail hugs the bank of picturesque Peters Kill Creek. Hike will be done at a relaxed pace - no one will be left behind. The aim is enjoyment by everyone, not speed! If the group wants to, we may extend the hike a bit by doing a piece of the Blueberry Run Trail.

What to bring: $8 per car park entry fee, plenty of water, snacks, bug repellent

Directions to trail head:
Note that this is the lower parking area, right next to Rte 44/55, not the parking area at the top of the big hill.

Cancellation info: I'll send email if the weather looks doubtful

    Hi Sue, how are you doing after surgery?

      Hi Marlene! This past week I went on my first hike since that day. I wore the brace just in case but otherwise I don't need it. The OT is working great and I've started working on strength and picking things up now. The surgeon did a wonderful job!

      Healing nicely so far. Off pain killers. The splint/bandages come off Tuesday. I'm thankful it wasn't my leg, that I had emergency items in my backpack and that Purvi & Nikhil were there. How lucky was that!!
