Diamond Mountain

Saturday, October 24, 2020

We’ll hike through rock gardens and over bubbling brooks before climbing the high ridge of Diamond Mountain. If you’re lucky and they’re in season, you’ll be able to pick fresh blueberries and wintergreen along the way! Once at the top of Diamond Mountain,  beautiful views of the Hudson River Valley will open up in front of you, and on a clear day you’ll see the sparkling skyline of Manhattan in the distance.
