Hike of the Week
Hike of the Week - BACK ON THE TRAIL
Good news for hikers: Parks and trails are open; medical experts encourage outdoor exercise, and health care system has stabilized.
Tuesday regular (5 - 8 miles) and flex (3 - 5 miles) hiking activity is suitable for current conditions and is now back on the schedule.
However, with some changes in procedure:
Utilize trails and parking areas that are lightly used
Be first out - leave home at 0730 (0800 for flex) and meet at the trail head. No car pooling
Keep to small groups - 4 or 5
Keep 6+ feet distance between hikers while walking, no grouping up
Weekly trails and driving instructions will be sent by email as usual to the Hiker's List on Constant Contact. Please let me know if you want to be added to that list.
Hope to see you on the trail. Please contact me with questions.
If you are new to hiking, please call Ed Collins (201-445-5158) for a brief introduction and overview.
2020 Catskills hiking trip will be held on October 5 to the 7 (Monday to Wednesday).
The 2019 trip to the Catskill Mountains was in early October. We had a great stay at the Villa Vosilla and 3 days of hiking in not so great weather.
Last year's fall hike/lunch with spouses was held on September 22. Walk was on the Heritage Trail from Goshen, and lunch was at Limoncello at the Orange Inn, also in Goshen. It was a great day for walking followed by a great meal.
