Tuesday, August 12, 8:20 AM – Alder Lake to Balsam Lake Mountain Firetower

This is a CATs hike in the western Catskills.

OK, then! We’ll try this great hike again after two rain postponements. Third time is the charm!

One of my favorite Summer hikes and I love company, so come join me. The hike has a lovely combination of walking, ups, downs and scrambles with some fun views. (Note: this hike is for experienced hikers only.) It is by far the prettiest way to enjoy this 3500 peak. Hike about 12 miles. Dipping in Alder Lake at end of hike will happen! It is Summer!

Dress comfortably in moisture wicking clothing and wear good hiking shoes. Bring lunch and plenty of water (at least 2 quarts). Well behaved dogs allowed.

Limited registration. Must leave name and a reachable phone to register! Time will be decided.
