Four Hikes and a BBQ highlight our 2019 Hike Fest. Full details are found here.
One of the walks is a short hike led by Bob Gildersleeve. Starting at our U&D train station and going along the Kaaterskill Rail Trail, we will follow a wood road from the trail to the site of Sphinx Rock and a natural stone bench known as "The Sofa."
Once a favorite spot of Twilight Park's Linger Not Society. The 1912 Handbook or Walk in the Vicinity of Twilight Park describes the walk from Featherbed Lane to the site. Members of that hiking group can be seen seated on the very firm sofa in the accompanying photograph. We may not be dressed to compare with those ladies and gentlemen, but we hope to capture a similar image though a few years later. We will also see the more well known Sphinx Rock and perhaps the view from Prospect Rock.
Whether you choose to join this walk or one of the others you are sure to enjoy a beautiful Autumn walk and a great way to begin your Columbus Day weekend.
Volunteers always needed
We also ask for your support in the form of membership dollars and your donations to our upcoming capital campaign. Our annual membership drive will begin in May. Watch for the information in the mail and please respond generously.
Working together, we can continue to discover, interpret, share, and preserve the history of the Mountain Top for ourselves and our children.
