Winter Snowshoe/Hike Series–Albert Family Community Forest

Date: Saturday, January 27, 2018 10:00 am - 1:00 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! 

We’ll snowshoe if conditions allow, or hike if not, through RPA’s Albert Family Community Forest in East Nassau. We’ll follow several newly completed trails in this beautiful and historic place, skirting a long cascade, old stone walls, a long-abandoned homesite, and a large wetland. The trails will be approximately 3-4 miles but we may have to snowshoe into the Forest to access them, adding .5 mile distance. Trails are rocky, steep, and might be muddy and slippery in places. We’ll also be crossing a brook down a ravine over mossy and possibly wet rocks. If it’s icy participants will need cleats or microspikes.

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.
