Hike Shawangunk Ridge State Forest

Leader: Sharon Klein
March 27, 2021

It was a picture perfect Spring day for this hike in the Shawangunk Ridge State Forest.  This hike has been largely undiscovered, as all had never been to the trailhead and didn’t know of its existence.   A wide variety of terrain was covered, from the sandy scrub pines on the top of the ridge, to the large rock formations and crevices below the ridge to water crossings.  Water flowed out of the mountain and oozed out of layered boulders into a cascading waterfall that was viewed at the end of the hike following a short drive to the adjacent road.  We even discovered an abandoned mine!
