The CMC will again lead a hike as part of Trailfest at Kenco Outfitters. This year we’ll explore the new trail at Jockey Hill. John Exter, a former CMC board member, will lead the hike.
These trails wind through the Bluestone Wild Forest near Kingston for 4.5 miles. The trail is for multi-purpose use, including mountain biking and cross country skiing, as well as hiking. The hike is moderately difficult due to its length.
This hike should be of interest to hikers who are working to complete the requirements for the Catskills All Trails (CATs) Certificate, awarded by the CMC to those hikers who hike all of the designated hiking trails in the Catskill Park.
The hike is open to hikers all abilities. Be sure to wear good hiking shoes and dress in moisture wicking clothing for your comfort. Bring a snack if you like and be sure to bring adequate water suppplies – at least a quart.
No dogs on this hike, please.
Meet at Kenco at 1000 Hurley Mountain Rd. and SR 28, just west of Kingston. From there we’ll drive to the trailhead and spot cars at the end of the trail for the return to the starting point.
