There is nothing like walking through thew woods on a crisp winter day.  The crunch under your feet is the only thing you hear that breaks the silence except of course the dozens of great conversations you will be having with others on the trip that day as you walk past frozen waterfalls and lakes!  Please note that this trip will only be held if the conditions are safe.  If there is too much snow or ice on the trails you may opt to join us for the Snow Shoeing Trip to the same location or get a refund.  How it works:

  • Register and pay below to lock your space in for the Winter Hike.
  • We will carefully monitor the trail conditions all week to see if it is safe to go.  If it is not, then we will refund your fee or you may opt to join the snow shoeing trip that day and pay the difference ($65 additional)
  • We will make the determination by Thursday.

How hard is the hike?:  We will be on mostly carriage paths (flat gravel roads).  There are some slight inclines.  The entire walk will be around 2 miles depending on the trails that are accessible.  Mostly a level 5 out of 10.

Cost: $65 includes ($55 VIP Members): transportation to and from the Poughkeepsie Train station, park fees, guide fee’s, taxes and gratuities.

Not included: Lunch, Train fare.  (you may also drive to meet the group at the train station)
