Tuesday Trek: The Shorter and More Scenic Route to Gertrude’s Nose at Minnewaska
April 13, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm
Join Laura Conner, Environmental Educator, and Vanessa Pagano, Student Conservation Association/AmeriCorps Environmental Educator, for an adventurous, six-mile round-trip hike to Gertrude’s Nose and back along the same route. This footpath, which traverses an escarpment edge, offers one of the most expansive views in Minnewaska. From our start at Lake Minnewaska, this route will follow Millbrook Mountain Carriage Road to Gertrude’s Nose Footpath, which offers broad views of the Wallkill Valley, Taconic Mountains and beyond. This modestly challenging hike includes a steep rock scramble, a few hills and some tricky footing. Participants must bring water, snacks and lunch and wear appropriate hiking shoes. Please note, if the trail is still closed for safety reasons, this hike route will be changed. 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 Minnewaska Visitor Center. Pre-registration is required by calling Minnewaska at 845-255-0752.
