Hike Roosa Gap State Forest

Leader: Sharon Klein
Monday, October 11, 2021

On a perfect Fall day we avoided the leaf peeper crowds and traversed the Shawangunk Ridge from the Wurtsboro Ridge State forest on Pickles road, to Route 52, near Sam’s Point. We had 360 views from the fire tower, with little to no wind. Mushrooms were out in abundance as well as efts and (unfortunately) some small biting things. The Shawangunk Ridge is one of the best kept secrets in the region. The only folks we saw were coming up from the Cox road parking area for the short loop. We had the Ridge to ourselves for most of the day. 

Participants were SherriG, RobertaF, EdieZ, AmyK, RobinS, JoanB, RichardC, KarenC, and the leader, Sharon Klein.
