Fall is a beautiful time of year! And just as beautiful are all the amazing outdoor activities it offers. For this trip, enjoy the best of fall with Adventure Untamed. Spend the first half of the day hiking on the trails of Minnewaska State Park Preserve and see beautiful glacial lakes and sweeping ridge views. Then, enjoy the rest of the afternoon at a local orchard, picking apples (they have so much variety!) and pumpkins. You can eat as many apples as you want for free while picking and only pay for what you take home. The orchard has lots of yummy food to taste – apple cider donut ice cream sandwich, anyone?
