6th Annual Rensselaer Plateau Traverse Hike

 

Sept 26 & 27 2015

 

Join us for one or both days of our 2 day Plateau Traverse Hike. Or come for just the morning or afternoon of either day. Become an end to ender. On Saturday  will meet at Pineridge Cross Country Ski Area at 7:30am on Saturday and take shuttle buses to our starting point just below the plateau escarpment in the Tibbits State Forest and will spend the day hiking back to Pineridge (about 16 miles mostly on trails but with some bushwhacking). Participants are welcome to pitch a tent and spend the night. We will have a BBQ and campfire and breakfast. We will leave Pineridge by 8am on Sunday to hike to the southern escarpment in Stephentown (about 16 miles on trails, logging roads and some bushwhacking). Shuttle buses will bring participants back to Pineridge at the end of the day. Note: we scout out new routes each year and will not know the exact route until Sept. This event is cosponsored by the Rensselaer Land Trust, the Dyken Pond Environmental Education Center, the Friends of the Dyken Pond Center, and Pineridge Cross Country Ski Area.
