Spring Hike Saturday, 3/27 - Lets get out on the trails !

Dear fellow SSC members,

We are going to meet on Saturday, 3/27 10 AM at the following location:

Rockefeller State Park hike

Parking lot:

988 Bedford Rd, Pleasantville, NY

Hike description:

Buttermilk Hill Area is the section of Rockefeller State Parke Park that is the field and forest ridge seen from the Stone Barns.

The trail head is on Route 117. Buttermilk is bordered by Route 9A and Route 448. Driving west from the Taconic or 9A, the parking lot is on your left. Driving east on Route 117, the parking lot is on your right.

This is a moderate hike 6 to 7 miles. Mostly carriage trails except for the beginning which is a narrow path. There are several hills.

At the end of the hike, we may have a late lunch at a local restaurant.
