I'm planning on Gertrude's Nose from Lake Minnewaska this is a state park $10 per car but the lake is really nice and a swim after the hike would be nice. There should be plenty of blueberries and I'm planning on a couple of "rest" stops to pick some. I am not responsibly for those eating too many overripe berries.

Minnewaska Park is one of my favorite places to hike. I have spent most of my hiking and backpacking time there in my 20's. The lake is crystal clear and perfect for cooling off after a nice hike. There are many views.

This is a good hike for beginner hikers that can walk 8 miles as there is about 800' total change in elevation with gradual up's and downs. We will take breaks as needed. Hiking boot/shoes are highly recommended. Bring lunch and plenty of water. Although I love dogs they are not allowed on hikes I lead. Look into the MeetUp group Capital District Canine Hikes for hiking with dogs.

If you have any question about your ability to do this hike please call me at[masked] no latter than 10pm or email me.

Those coming from Albany could post a comment if you want to meet there.

If you need to reach me on the morning of the hike my cell # is 322-7213. OTHER THAN THE DAY OF THE HIKE CALL[masked] AS I HAVE NO CELL SERVICE WHERE I LIVE.

How to find us:Look for the Blue Chevy Impala
