Event Description

Our 11-mile interpretive trek from Cold Spring to Fishkill will take you up—and down—some of the most rugged trails in the Hudson Highlands. While bagging four of its tallest peaks, you’ll have a birds’-eye view of magnificent fall foliage and migrating falcons.

Please be advised: The hike is extremely strenuous. It features nearly 4,000 feet of elevation gain as well as rock and boulder scrambles. Do not attempt if you’re scared of heights or haven’t taken a 10-mile day hike in the past year. This is a sh

uttle hike, so once you’re dropped off you must hike back.

All hikers must have proper all-day hiking attire (including a backpack, boots, rain jacket and lightweight clothing), 100 fl. oz. of water, a lunch and snacks, sun block, sunglasses and bug spray. The hike is rain or shine; please bring rain gear—the weather can change quickly. All minors must be accompanied by an adult, and no pets, please.

MEETING PLACE: Fishkill Ridge Sunnyside Road parking lot. The shuttle bus will depart at 9, so be prompt.

Space is limited so please RSVP.
