Come explore the trails at RPA’s Poestenkill Community Forest
on the last day of winter. Trail maps and driving directions are available here.
From the parking lot we will take the Saphouse (red) trail to Hemlock Hollow (yellow) trail to Moose Meadow (green) to Moose (yellow) to Sugar Rock Rd (white) to Big Beaver Bog (Blue) where we’ll take a break at an overlook of the dramatic Big Beaver Bog. Make sure you bring snacks, drinks and your camera - you never know what we might see this time of year!
From there. we’ll take either the Hemlock Swamp (white) or Moose trail (yellow)
back to the parking lot.
If there is still snow on the ground, please plan on snowshoes or microspikes and seasonal hiking gear. If the trails are clear, we may do additional routes depending on conditions and time. In any case, this trip will feature a wide variety of features of the Poestenkill Community Forest. All trails are well marked and there are several points where participants could easily return
to the parking lot if needed.
