Winter Snowshoe/Hiking Series-Gundrum Property–Grafton Forest

Date: Saturday, December 30, 2017 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

RLT and Rensselaer Plateau Alliance (RPA) have teamed up to offer a winter snowshoe/hiking series. Stay warm this winter by getting out with others who love the outdoors as much as you do. Join us! 

Come celebrate the beginning of winter and the New Year (almost) with a hike or snowshoe through the recently acquired Gundrum property-Grafton Forest adjacent to the Pittstown State Forest. This stunning parcel of almost 1000 acres offers some of the best viewpoints on the Rensselaer Plateau and we will get to them along marked and mapped trails.

Overall distance will be 3 to 5 miles depending on conditions and speed of group but plan on 3-5 hours in the woods.  Full winter gear is required. Winter hiking requires proper equipment and gear for conditions: warm layered clothing, gloves, hat/balaclava, spikes/cleats/snowshoes for ice or snow, the willingness and ability to climb steep slopes and negotiate uneven, rocky, icy, wet, or muddy terrain. Bring plenty of water, snacks, and lunch.

For additional questions or if you don’t have access to email, call Fran Egbert at 518-674-3214 or the RPA office at 518-712-9211.

$5 donation collected the day of the outing.
