The Park Rocks! Scenic Hike for Families to Awosting Falls at Minnewaska
April 11, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Join Laura Conner, Environmental Educator and Vanessa Pagano, Student Conservation Association/AmeriCorps Environmental Educator for a scenic and educational hike to Awosting Falls. As we walk this nearly three-mile-long route, we’ll stop to observe numerous, unique rock features that hikers might otherwise miss. Participants will see and learn first-hand about the Park Preserve’s geologic history, including its iconic quartz rock, the glaciers of the last Ice Age, and former mining activities. This program is recommended for children over the age of nine, accompanied by a parent or legal guardian over the age of 18. Due to COVID protocols, the total number of participants for this program is limited to twelve individuals. All participants must wear face coverings or keep a minimum of six-foot distance away from others who are not part of their immediate household. Meet at the Peter’s Kill Climbing Area. Pre-registration is required by calling Minnewaska at 845-255-0752.
