Announcing a new Meetup for Ulster County Outdoors!
What: Intermediate Hike: Mt. Beacon to Fishkill Ridge: Partial Scout
When: Thursday, October 27,[masked]:00 AM
Where: Mount Beacon Parking
Beacon, NY 12508
Okay, let's redo this hike. The views were spectactular. Now let's see where we went wrong and get it right. The distance looks at about 5 1/2- 6 miles. Here is the plan: We'll hike up Mt. Beacon Casino Trail stopping at the Casino (1200) and the Firetower (1500). Afterward we'll connect with the yellow trail/Wilkinson Memorial (1500). The Dover Junction/blue trail will connect us to the white trail (this is where we went wrong) taking us to Lamb Hill (1400). The white trail becomes the Fishkill Ridge Trail (1200) which we will be on for a short while. The yellow trail connects to the red Casino Trail of Mt. Beacon almost at the end of the red trail. The group usually goes out to eat afterward. Feel free to eat out afterward. I am open to suggestions in the area. The lunch afterward completes the incredible bond which hiking together begins.
