Catskills hike - Acra Point Loop

  • Needs a location

  • Green Honda Civic - plate # BED9871
  • Note that the hike time is 9:00.  This date is almost the shortest daylight of the year, so I want to allow more time, in case something goes wrong.

    The main attractions are two view points, where you can see Black Head, Black Dome, Thomas Cole, and Windham High Peak mountains.  During the 2nd half of the hike, we'll walk beside Batavia Kill creek.

    A description of the hike can be found here:  http://www.nynjtc.org/hike/acra-point-and-batavia-kill-loop

    Round trip distance:  5.2 miles

    Level of hike:  intermediate (moderate to strenuous)

    We'll hike at a relaxed pace - no one will be left behind

    What to bring:  water, snack/lunch, **TRACTION DEVICES FOR YOUR BOOTS**

    Carpooling: Because getting to the trailhead is quite a long drive for those of us who live in the New Paltz area or south or east of New Paltz, I suggest we carpool from the Park and Ride lot at New Paltz, just off exit 18 of I87 (NYS Thruway).  After going through the toll booths, the Park and Ride lot is immediately on the left.  We'll meet here at 7:20 am.  Please post a comment if you want to meet here; if I don't hear from you I'll assume you're going directly to the trailhead and will not wait for you.

    Directions to trail head (meet here at 9:00 am):  http://www.meetup.com/Ulster-County-NY-Outdoors/messages/boards/thread/49276193

    Suggested donation:  $2 to help offset the subscription fee that meetup charges to organizers.

    Cancellation info: If I need to cancel I'll send email the night before.
