Overview

If heights and walking on uneven rock surfaces and using your arms when you hike sounds like fun, then this is a good choice for you. The hike will be limited to 12 people who like "adventuresome" hikes. On easy/flat terrain, we will move at a moderate speed and slow a bit on challenging or steep sections. The hike consists of carriageways, mixed terrain ascents (some steep), and a very rock scrambly segment leading to the "Crevice", which includes climbing several handmade ladders while stuffed between giant slabs of rocks. We'll emerge to infinite views and visit Skytop tower. Meet at the Testimonial Gateway Trailhead Parking lot at 9:15 a.m. 6.5-7 miles of distance. We should probably end before 3:30 pm. Be prepared to pay the Mohonk Preserve $15 daily use fee, unless you are a member. RAIN WILL CANCEL. Determination will be made the night before. Despite the recent easing of Covid-19 restrictions - out of consideration for all people who share the trails with us, all participants must 1) be free of COVID-19 infection to their knowledge 2) carry face masks 3) carry hand sanitizer of at least 60% alcohol and 4) be prepared to observe social distancing.
