Southeast Hollow to Mattison Hollow in Cherry Plain, 7.2 miles.

Leader: Martha Waldman 

A scenic ascent up Southeast Hollow along a woodland stream to the Crest Trail, then ups and downs along the ridge of Misery Mountain, and ending with a steep descent to Mattison Hollow and its waterfalls and streams. This is a strenuous hike with 1500 feet of elevation gain in a couple miles, and another four shorter ascents along Misery Mountain. You must register in advance.


Sponsored by RLT, RPA and Taconic Hiking Club


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.
