Overview

On this hike we will have some nice viewpoints on the ridge, as we ascend Parker Cabin and Tom Jones Mountains, and return on a scenic woods trail. We begin our hike right at the meeting spot, and spend much of our day on the RD and Yellow Triangle trails. The hike ends in the town of Tuxedo, where we can spend some time in Bentley's Café, and have easy access back to Manhattan by both train and bus. We will hike at a steady, intermediate 3 level (not fast, but definitely not slow) pace over a distance of 8 miles, with some steep hills on hiking trails with varied terrain. Cumulative elevation gain will be approximately 2000 feet.  There are no special skills or equipment required, other than to wear hiking boots, and have at least 2-3 quarts of water/sports drinks along with lunch.  However, hikers should be in good condition to complete a fairly strenuous hike (Per AMC policy, please no dogs, unless indicated otherwise). Rain or even questionable forecast may cancel or modify; check website for latest updates.  We meet at 10:15 in Tuxedo.  The transportation information for both public transportation leaving from Port Authority and cars (AMC Trans code: 1C on the AMC New York-North Jersey website) is indicated below. Please purchase a one way ticket since there may be rides back to the city offered, and arrive a bit early to allow time to purchase tickets and get to the proper gate. 1. Leaves 9:10 a.m. SHORT LINE bus (www.coachusa.com/shortline) North Wing for ticket purchase, usually leaves from gate 408, but check at ticket counter. C. Tuxedo, Orange CO., NY. Arr. 10:12.
