Hike the Shaupeneak Ridge Waterfall Trail (near Esopus)

  • Needs a location

  • Green Honda Civic with roof rack plate # BED9871
  • This hike is in the vicinity of Esopus (Ulster County), which is itself south of Kingston on Rte 9W.  The attractions are Louisa Pond, a viewpoint towards the Catskills and another towards the Hudson River, and a waterfall.  We will hike about 4.5 miles, part of which is relatively level and some of which involves a descent and then an ascent on the return.  The hilly piece takes us to the waterfall.  Information about the hike area and a map of the trails can be found at these two links:

    Jeff the new 9:30 times are too early for me...10 was much better and I could barely make that. I have four horses to feed in the morning and that's not something that can be done very quickly, get back and change for the hike and then get to wherever the hike is.

      Sorry about that Freya. I miss seeing you. The earlier time is because the days are shorter, and I have to account for my own slow pace and the possibility that something might go wrong. They'll go back to 10 for a short hike and when the days get longer again.
