May 2008

May 18th,Breakneck Ridge, Beacon NY-(very strenuous) The plan is to meet at the Foundry Cafe in Cold Spring, NY (time to be announced), I happen to like the food and the old cafe feel to the place, eat a nice breakfast then off to Breakneck Ridge, The Breakneck Ridge Trail (white, blaze trail) begins just north of the tunnel on Route 9D, 2.1 miles north of Cold Spring. This trail is for hiker's with experience, the trail head just north of the tunnel on 9D brings you right to the foot of a very strenuous 800-1000 ft hike/scramble. Haven't decided yet which way we will come back, depends on the weather, We will hike for approx 4-6 hrs. and Watch out for snakes! Then Back into Cold Spring for dinner! We'll decide on where while we are hiking, you never know what you'll be in the mood for after a good hike! For more info on this hike check out gorp.com
