Tuesday Trek: Hike to Verkeerder Kill Falls and High Point at Sam’s Point. Join Laura Conner, Environmental Educator, and Emily Shertzer, Student Conservation Association/AmeriCorps member, for an eight and a half mile long, beautiful, hike to Verkeerder Kill Falls and High Point. We’ll follow a combination of carriage roads and footpaths as we meander through the blackened forest where the forest fire of April, 2016 took place. The understory of this forest is filled with berry bushes whose leaves typically turn a bright scarlet in autumn. Along the way, we’ll visit Verkeerder Kill Falls, which drops over a dramatic rocky ledge, and is the highest waterfall in the Shawangunk Mountains. And, we’ll hike the rocky cliff edges of the High Point Footpath, leading to High Point, which offers a 360-degree view of the Catskills, Lake Awosting and the Shawangunk Ridge. This hike is challenging in places and participants must wear proper hiking shoes, bring water, food and appropriate gear for the weather conditions. Meet at the Sam’s Point Visitor Center. Pre-registration is required by calling Minnewaska at 255-0752.
