We will start the day with a 1.6 mile loop hike in a Nature Preserve in the Catskills Mountains.
Half of the trail we will be hiking by a beautiful creek.
The trail is mostly flat with an elevation gain of 160 ft. If it has been raining the trail might be a bit muddy, so please wear appropriate footwear.
On this tour we will eat a box lunch at a picnic area in a beautiful state park with water and mountain views.
