Wander Tour auf Mount Beacon

Hallo Freunde,

James Hoegler, Mitglied in der Gruppe und auch Appalachian Mountain Club, wandert am Samstag 13 Juli auf Mount Beacon. Weitere Details sind unten.

What to bring: Sturdy hiking shoes, comfortable clothes, Lunch and snacks, 3 liters of water und Gute Stimmung.

Saturday, July 13, We will meet in the Commuter Parking Lot of the Beacon Train Station to pick up mass transit users and drive to the 1.5 miles trailhead on Route 9D. If you're running late, please call and meet us at the trailhead.

AMC Hike code 3D. 8miles (The hikes are rated in terms of pace and terrain difficulty.  If you are not sure which hike might be suitable for you, check out the Hike codes http://www.amc-ny.org/hike_codes or contact the Hike leader.)

This will be an 8 mile hike for those who REALLY want a workout while enjoying nature & learning about the forests we hike through. Please note: This hike begins with a 1400' climb to the 1930's era Fire Observation Tower standing at the top of the highest summit in the Hudson Highlands. It's an arduous climb, but breathtaking views and blueberries await you. . . perhaps even a few raspberries. The normally "brisk" pace will be adjusted due to the summer heat and a 4 mile "early out" option will be available. We will make stops along the way to take note of some of the more than 30 different types of native trees.
We will meet in the parking lot of Metro-North's Beacon Train Station and shuttle 1.5 miles to the trailhead.


- Public Transportation: Take the Metro-North 8:44 Hudson Line Train to Beacon Station, arriving 10:10am.

- Meeting Time/Place: 10:15 am at Metro-North’s Beacon Train Station – Northbound Commuter Parking Lot. 1.5 Mile shuttle to Trailhead on Route 9D.

- Driving Directions: 47 Railroad Drive, Beacon, NY 12508

    A great time. We all profited from James' patience, preparation and learning. So many trees! Black walnut, sycamore, linden, red birch, yellow birch, sassafras, and the (sometimes) stinking one whose name I can't remember. Thank you all. --Andy
