What better way to begin the new 2016 than to hike up Slide Mountain, highest in the Catskills at 4180 feet. Lovely trek up to great views. We will do the hike as a loop and enjoy a varied terrain. Plan to have all winter gear as microspikes, snowshoes, poles and maybe crampons, if needed. Dress in suitable winter gear and in layers. Have lots to drink, maybe something hot and SNACKS! Hike must be cancelled if poor weather. Hike is a little over 7 miles. Slide is a must see hike and we plan to have a full day outdoors and enjoy it there. See you on the trail!
Registration limited. MUST leave a full name and phone number to register. Register ten days before hike and NO email available or registration after Friday at 7pm before hike, please. Call afternoon before hike if weather iffy! Deanna at email@example.com or 845 216-2021.
