Petersbrug Pass to Berlin Mountain and on to Southeast Hollow in Berlin, 7.3 miles.

Due to an extreme heat warning we are cancelling this leg of the TCT hike series. We are working on finding a date to replace this one, likely in September, same meeting place and schedule. 

Leader: Peter Wood

Starting at Petersburg Pass and going south this time, the trail has some steep ascents on the way to the summit of Berlin Mountain, at 2,818 feet New York’s tallest peak outside of the Adirondacks and Catskills. Then through an uncommon spruce-fir forest and over some minor summits, and down Southeast Hollow. 

We will hike the entire 37 miles of the Taconic Crest Trail over the course of the year in six separate trips. This beautiful ridge-top trail winds through New York, Massachusetts, and a corner of Vermont, from North Petersburg to near New Lebanon, passing by the renowned Snow Hole and over Rensselaer County’s highest peak. With about 7000 feet of both cumulative ascent and cumulative descent, views include the Little Hoosick Valley and Mount Greylock. Join us for one, some or all of the sections. Those who complete the entire trail (with us and/or on their own), can receive a patch from the Taconic Hiking Club.

All hikes have long steep uphill and/or downhill sections over rocky ground. Wear boots or sturdy shoes. Bring lunch, snacks and plenty of water. Prepare for cool and windy conditions. 

All hikes start at 9 am. Free for members, $5 for non-members. Please register here.
