This is the perfect day for you if you would like to enjoy a more relaxed hike with plenty of opportunities for bird watching. This hike is 8 miles long, but almost entirely flat, so you are in for a pretty relaxed day. We’ll be hiking through Bashakill Wildlife Area. As per the DEC, “the Bashakill Wetland is home to over 200 species of birds and is a state designated Bird Conservation Area.” We’ll be there during peak migration season, and our guide Gary – an amateur birder – will be there every step of the way to point out these amazing creatures. Let’s enjoy hiking and birding together!
