If you don’t know what the lucky few of us already know, that hiking in the winter is a different and glorious experience, come and learn more at the Winter Gear and Gab at Spillian in Fleischmanns on December 14th from 1 to 4 pm. This event is free and open to the public but you must register by Friday 12/12/2014 (see below).
Avid Catskills hiker, CMC Board Member and Trail Conference Catskills Assistant Program Coordinator, Heather Rolland, will present a short program exploring getting started and getting inspired to get outside this winter, with a focus on gear, safety, and special concerns for kids and dogs while in the great outdoors.
Will Soter, the NYNJTC’s Trails Chair for the southern Catskills, will lead a walk on the Spillian grounds, and discuss the many volunteer opportunities available on local trails.
Local outfitters Kenco The Work & Play Outfitter, Catskill Mountain Storehouse and Morgan Outdoors will be on hand to answer questions about winter gear, offer suggestions for must haves and stocking stuffers, and yes – they will have a wonderful array of great stuff to help you get outside and play.
Refreshments will be served.
With the right gear, anyone can enjoy getting out this winter!
