Kick off the New Year with a First Day hike with the CMC on the Shavertown Trail in the Town of Andes. This lovely 5.3 mile hike takes you past a beautiful pond with a lovely view of the reservoir and through a lovely, mature woodland. The first section of the trail is moderate and the second section is relatively easy.
There may be snow and/or ice, so bring a traction device such as Microspikes. The forecast is for colder weather so dress in layers of clothing made from a wicking material and expect the possibility of a steady wind. We probably won’t stop for long given the temperatures but bring a snack and plenty of water. Registration Required. To register contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 845-676-3643. Please contact hike organizer about bringing dogs.
Directions: From SR 28/30 in Margaretville, go west about 3 miles to the dividing of the highways. Turn south onto SR 30 and go 8 miles to the Shavertown Bridge Boat Launch on the left, just after turning right onto CR 1.
From SR 28 in Andes, turn south onto CR 1 and travel 8 miles to the Shavertown Bridge Boat Launch on the right.
