Saturday, March 18, 9:00 AM | Winter Hike on Wittenberg from Woodland Valley

Hike to Mt. Wittenberg (3780 ft.), starting in Woodland Valley. Enjoy great view from the top looking down the Esopus Creek all the way to Ashokan Reservoir. If time allows, we will proceed to Mt Cornell (3680 ft.). Either way we return on the same trail to Woodland Valley. Warm clothing and micro spikes or crampons are highly recommended. It is a tough climb for small dogs so if you bring one keep this in mind.

Pre-registration required by Feb. 12. Group size is limited. Contact Rick Roberts at hikerrick2000@yahoo.com or (607) 746-9694.

This is a strenuous hike. Bring lunch and snacks. Bring snowshoes and microspikes or other traction footwear. Full crampons may be desired on certain steep sectionsIMG_0644z. Poles will be helpful.

Well behaved dogs are allowed. Due to the hike’s difficulty, bringing small dogs is not recommended.

 

Directions: NYS Rte. 28 to Phoenicia Village. Use High St. from the south side of the Bridge St. Bridge. (The Woodland Valley Bridge is closed.) Follow it west about 1 mile to Woodland Valley Rd. and then stay left (south) about 6 miles to the DEC campground. Park in the parking area (no fees during off season).
