Leader: Annette Caruso
John Ragusa planned a jaunt around the Catskill Visitor Center trails, including their new 80 foot fire tower which you don’t even need to climb a mountain to reach. Unfortunately John got called into work so Annette Caruso led the group of 16 hikers, in which ADK members were outnumbered by 10 guests from Meet-Up.
It was a beautiful day, and the group enjoyed perusing the visitor center as we gathered. Even with the short distances, we so enjoyed the comradely and scenery we spent over 2 hours meandering across and finally up the short but steep trail to the ridge. Really fun day was had for all that made the scene. A teaser hike, with views of Mt. Tremper inspiring us to get out and conquer that next!
