Taconic Crest Trail in One Year–VI

Date: Saturday, October 14, 2017 9:00 am

We will hike the entire 37 miles of the Taconic Crest Trail in six separate trips over several months. This beautiful ridge-top trail winds through NY, MA, and a corner of VT, from near New Lebanon to North Petersburg, passing by the renowned Snow Hole and over Rensselaer County’s highest peak. With about 7000 feet each of 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.

$5 donation per hike. Please register with listed contact. All hikes have long steep uphill and/or downhill sections over rocky ground.

Part VI: Sat., October 14 • 9:00 a.m.
Petersburg Pass to north end in N Petersburg (7.9 miles)
Register: e-mail Nick Conrad

The Snow Hole, a deep crevice where snow and ice last well into the summer, is the highlight of this section. Also long views to the west and to the east into Vermont, white quartz, and a short stretch in Vermont, finishing with a long, steep descent to the north trailhead along Route 346.
