Fall Nature Walks
October 4 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
OCT. 4: Escarpment Walk, Thacher Park. Nancy Engel, leader. Enjoy fall foliage and views from the clifftop, look for migrating hawks overhead and hopefully waterfalls below. We’ll meet at the park Visitor Center and walk along the Escarpment Trail, then descend the Indian Ladder Trail to walk along the base of the cliff, bringing us back to the Visitor Center. There are staircases at each end of the Indian Ladder Trail; for an easier walk, participants can return to the Visitor Center from the Escarpment Trail. Directions: We can meet and carpool or caravan to the Visitor Center from the Stewart’s at the west end of Rt. 146/Main St., Altamont. To meet at the Center pass Stewart’s and take Rte. 156, turn left/south on Old Stage Rd. and continue where it joins Rte. 157; at the next intersection turn left to continue on Rte. 157, which leads to the Center.
Meeting times are 9:30 a.m., and walks usually last around 2 hours. There is no pre-registration, but we may need to follow covid recommendations of the time. For information email email@example.com. Cancellations or changes may be found at www.ecosny.org or www.facebook.com/ecosny.
