Hike with State Senator David Carlucci and Trail Conference

Saturday, November 5, 2011 - 10:00am - 12:00pm


Come hike the stunning Bear Mountain Loop with Senator David Carlucci on November 5! We will meet at 10:00 AM at the summit of Bear Mountain – parking is free. The hike will depart at 10:30 AM.

This hike follows a newly-built section of the Appalachian Trail (A.T.), formally opened in a ceremony on Saturday, June 4,2011. As part of a multi-year project to reconstruct this heavily-used section of the A.T., a team of New York-New Jersey Trail Conference volunteers, led by professional trail builders, created a magnificent footpath that takes full advantage of the natural features of interest found along the trail.

For more information please call Sen. Carlucci's office at 845-623-3627.

Driving Directions:

Take the Palisades Interstate Parkway to Exit 19 (Perkins Memorial Drive/Bear Mountain Park) and continue along the Seven Lakes Drive. In approximately one mile, make a very sharp left turn onto the Perkins Memorial Drive and follow it for two miles to a parking area at the top of Bear Mountain, at the base of the Perkins Memorial Tower.
