4th of July Hike and Swim
Fancy a dip in one of the Shawangunks’ glacial “sky lakes” over the holiday weekend? Come with us!
We’ll spend the day on carriage roads of the beautiful Minnewaska State Park. We’ll stop to take a dip in Lake Awosting (there are changing rooms right by the lake!), then continue to hike around the entire lake, taking in all its natural beauty. We’ll even take a little detour to check out the park’s beautiful Rainbow Falls!
Even though this trip has longer mileage, the carriage roads are gentler than traditional hiking trails. This is a perfect day for an intermediate-level hiker or advanced hikers looking for a relaxing day out!

While COVID-19 remains a concern, we are limiting our van capacity to a 10-person maximum, including guides, and leaving the middle seat empty in each row. The trips have a $20 fee to accommodate the changes we need to make for the COVID protocol. The fees will only be in effect while we limit capacity on trips.
