Sunday, August 24, 10 AM – Hike the FLT from Cabot Mtn. to Alder Lake

Hike on the Mary Smith section of the Finger Lakes Trail and enjoy the Beaverkill Vista on Cabot Mtn. Continue on the Touch-me-not Trail section to Big Pond and then to the beautiful  Alder Lake. Plan on a welcome dip at this serene spot on the trail which sits in a bowl surrounded by the mountains. This less traveled trail is well worth seeing.

Wear good hiking boots and dress in moisture wicking clothing for your comfort. There may be some nettles in August. Bring lots of water and lunch.

Traverse is about 7 miles of ups, downs and scrambles. See the NYNJTC Catskills Trail MAP # 144. We will meet at Big Pond to plan out our car shuttle. Meet time is 10 AM.
