Join us for a kind of new hike at Illinois Mountain Park
October 23 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am EDT
The group did this hike once, let’s check it out again.
I have selected a 5ish miles route, with an elevation gain of 700 feet, and is rated moderate by Alltrails.
The plan is to walk up the service road, to the yellow trail, loop around, and back down the service road.
Description from Scenic Hudson site:
There is a $3 meetup fee for this adventure, to offset organizer’s site expenses. Venmo is preferred.
If you decide to come with us, please be at the parking lot on time; some of your fellow hikers show up 10-15 min early to be ready and show them the respect they deserve AND PLAN AHEAD.
Due to COVID-19, this event is limit to 12 hikers.
This organizer reserves the right to add from the wait-list as I see fit. Besides the first 5, everyone will initially be placed on the wait-list for this event. Frequent attendees with a good record of attending events they sign up will be prioritized. Pay attention to your RSVP; no shows may not be included in this or future events. In many instances, late cancellation is considered the same as a no show. Please cancel at least 48 hours in advance. This organizer invests a lot of time and effort into planning these events. We ask that you be courteous and respectful to the organizers and those on the wait-list when signing up for an event.
Don’t forget your spikes! If you don’t have spikes yet, now is an excellent time to get a pair. I recommend micro-spikes, but it’s ultimately your choice. https://www.greenbelly.co/pages/best-crampons-and-microspikes
