Peter’s Kill Loop Snowshoe Outing at Minnewaska


Join Nick Martin, Park Educator, for a snowshoe hike in the Peter's Kill Area of Minnewaska. During this recreational program, we will snowshoe the various footpaths in the Peter's Kill Area to make a two-mile loop. Departing from the Peter's Kill Parking Area, this outing will take participants on the Red Loop, Bullwheel, High Peter's Kill and Yellow Connector Footpaths. While the distance of this outing is relatively short, there a few sustained hills and rocky terrain that some may find challenging. A limited number of snowshoes are available for participants to borrow for this program from the Education Department. Otherwise, snowshoes may be rented for this program from the Park Preserve for a fee of $5 per person. Please plan to arrive by 9:30 a.m. if you will be borrowing snowshoes. If there is insufficient snow cover, this program will be offered as a hike and participants are strongly encouraged to bring micro spikes or other ice traction devices. Meet at the Peter's Kill Area. Pre-registration is required by calling the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center at 845-255-0752.
