Hamilton Point Carriage Road and Rainbow Falls Footpath Loop Hike
April 3, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
Come explore sections of Rainbow Falls and Scenic Trail Footpaths, along with sections of Hamilton Point, Castle Point, Lake Minnewaska, and Upper Awosting Carriage Roads on this approximately seven-mile hike. Our route will start at the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center and follow the west side of Lake Minnewaska to Millbrook Mountain Carriage Road. From there, we’ll continue on to Hamilton Point Carriage Road, following it until it intersects Scenic Trail Footpath. The footpath sections of this hike include some rocky areas, uneven footing, wet areas, and a short, steep rock scramble, which may be difficult for some. Due to the possibility of ice remaining on sections of Upper Awosting Carriage Road into April, participants are encouraged to pack microspikes. Participants are also encouraged to wear comfortable, waterproof boots and bring food and water to sustain themselves for the duration of the hike. Due to COVID protocols, the total number of participants for this program is limited to nine individuals. All participants must wear face coverings or keep a minimum six-foot distance away from others who are not part of their immediate household. Meet at the Lower Parking Area. Pre-registration is required by calling Minnewaska at 845-255-0752. The fee for parking is $10 per vehicle or a valid Empire Pass may be used.
