Lark in the Park - Leave No Trace Hike at Giant Ledge

 Registration is closed for this event
Celebrate the 2019 Catskills Lark in the Park with a Leave No Trace awareness workshop and hike at Giant Ledge!

Join a Trail Conference Trail Steward for moderate, 2.9-mile out-and-back hike to Giant Ledge, which offers many spectacular views.

During the hike, Trail Stewards will discuss Leave No Trace Principles as well as what it means to be a trail steward. The hike will begin at the Giant Ledge trail-head where we will start the moderately difficult climb up the viewpoint. While enjoying a snack at the viewpoint, you will be looking out over Woodland Valley, the Burroughs Range, and the range of peaks that encompass the Devil’s Path Range. The changing fall foliage and the breathtaking view will make you thankful that you came!

The 2019 Catskills Lark in the Park will be held Saturday, Oct. 5 through Monday, Oct. 14. Since its inception in 2004, the Lark has brought together people and organizations participating in hundreds of events aimed at celebrating and heightening awareness of the Catskill Mountains region of New York State and the Catskill Park. Activities annually include organized hikes, bicycle trips, paddles, service, and cultural and educational events. The coordination of this event is managed through a partnership between the Trail Conference, the Catskill Mountain ClubThe Catskill Center, and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

The Trail Conference is hosting several events during this year's Lark.
