Meetup/Ride Share

Going hiking next weekend! Here is a place to tell others where you are going and that you are willing to have others tag along with you. Take appropriate precautions in going with strangers.

The Trail Conference recommends that you keep day use party size under 25 and overnight use under 10. Some hiking area have stronger restrictions and may require permits for group use.

Hiking Sections 18/19 of Long Path and further north

I am a late middle aged female hiking the Long Path with my partner -- a late middle aged male who has already finished once. We are hoping to do Sections 18 and 19 -- from Denning Road to Phoenicia this weekend -- Aug. 12/13 or 13/14 in two days -- Fri/Sat or Sat/Sun camping out one night. We are looking for another hiker(s) to help with the shuttle. We do a very moderate pace. If not this weekend, then perhaps in the future -- let me know if you are interested in hiking the Long Path.

Long Path South of the Catskills

I posted in here a couple of years ago, and then unfortunately life got in the way so I was unable to see the responses that followed for a long time.  I have been trying to piece together completing the Long Path over the last 5 years or so, and have managed to complete about 220 miles thus far.   It is hard for me to get multiple days off in a row because of my job, so overnights have been a problem and I have been completeing the trail piece by piece on day hikes.  Currently I have most of the southern section of the trail left to hike with one section near Sam's Point .  Specifically I have sections 1-4, 6-7, 9-10, 12, and 14 left.  I am just looking for anybody who might be interested in meeting up and staging cars to complete some of these sections together.  I'm not looking to do big miles even though I am a very experienced hiker, but rather on the order of 9-15 miles in a day.  The way I look at it I have 9 hikes left (I think sections 1-3 can be easily combined into 2 seperate day hikes) and have set the goal of trying to finish by Labor Day.  If anybody would be interested in doing any of these sections, let me know and I will promise to get back to you as soon as possible...  

Still interested?

Epimethius   If you are still looking for a partner for any of these sections, I am as well

Need shuttle information

We are AT section hikers.  This year we are starting at Bear Mountain Recreation Area, Hessian Lake.  We are looking for for a shuttle from the Enterprise car rental in Peekskill to the trailhead on Manitou Rd just north of the Hemlock Springs Campsite.  We have used the Appalachian Trail shuttle list in the past, but there is nothing listed locally for this area.  We are in need of a shuttle late afternoon on Friday, May 9, 2014.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

New Years Day.

Is any one interested in a half  day hike on New Years Day?

Meeting follow hikers at the Kingston or New Paltz Trailways.

Does any follow hikers meet at the Kingston Trailways????     New Paltz Trailways????   I can usually meet follow hikers on Saturday  at 8:45 AM in Kingston.   BT

Hiking Partner

I am finging it it is just easier to hike solo than to find a partner or meet some one at the Bus station in Kingston or New Paltz. The way I look at its no one whats to hook up.

Long Path

I have been section hiking the Long Path in NY piece by piece over the last two summers and have set a goal to piece together the rest of it in the summer of 2012.  I live in the Albany, NY area and was hoping I could find others interested in hiking some single day hiking of the southern sections from the Catskills south to Ft. Lee.  I have completed through the central Catskills but as each day trip gets farther and farther away from my home it becomes more of a challenge to find others willing to make the 1 - 2 1/2 hour drive to get them done, especially since there are many roadwalkks still in affect on the Long Path.  Looking for others with a vehicle so we can stage cars.  The other snag is that I am looking for people who would be available to hike mid week (Mondays and Thursdays are the best for me) as I do work every weekend.  I am a very experienced hiker but am not looking to do anything huge (8-15 mile segments per day). I have already completed 2 hikes this year for just under 20 miles, so I am ready to go rain or shine whenever, let me know if you are interested...

Long Path

Greetings,       Like you it seems like I've done virtualy the same trek but from south to north. Currently I'm about half way stopping last year at the Trempor Mt. firetower in Phonecia. Wouldn't mind rehiking some sections. The weekdays won't be easy though...could try taking an occasional day off for a good hike. I'm also a rain or shine hiker.       Looking forward to here back, Jeff

RE: Long Path

Once you get out of the Catskill's Public transportation is an option if you time it right. Smileys Taxi in Tannersville should be able to help you as far south as Woodland Valley. Once you reach Upper Cherrytown Road Taxi/bus options will be available. It's that stretch between Woodland Valley Campground and Upper Cherrytown Road that will need careful planning. We backpacked the entire Long Path often on multi day trips and used public transportation for the most part all the way to the Schoharie County Line. I am sure a taxi would bring you to Sundown or Denning but it would not be cheap. please feel free to contact me ([email protected]) with questions. Also I will be able to help you out along the Shawangunk Ridge. I may also want to join you for a day in the Southern Catskill's. Have you thought about doing an overnight trip in the Southern Catskill's?   Andy Garrison
