CANCELLED-Winter Snowshoe/Hike Series–Petersburg Pass to Berlin Mountain, Taconic Crest Trail.

Start Date: Saturday, January 06, 2018 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

This outing has been cancelled due to the predicted cold temperatures and high winds.

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! 

Hike part of the Taconic Crest trail in winter.  We'll go from Petersburg Pass (on Rt. 2) to Berlin Mountain (highest mountain in New York State not in the Catskills or Adirondacks) and back.  Overall distance will be about 6 miles and probably take about 4-5 hours (depending on snow depth and if trail is broken out).  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.

$5 donation collected the day of the outing.
