Long Path Hike On July 5th

Sorry I haven't posted for a few days. I have been super busy. But I am back now with something that I think will be fun and it is right in the neighborhood. On Sunday the 5th of July there is going to be a group hike of the Long Path in Woodland Valley that will finish with a fun barbecue (with food by the Catskill Rose) at the Woodland Valley Campground. If you don't want to make the 6 hour hike you can just go to the barbecue. The hike is brought to you by Catskill Mountain Wild, Storehouse and the Catskill Rose. Here are the details I got from the Facebook page about the event.

Join us for a 12-mile hike of the new section of Long Path, guided by Jeff Vincent of Catskill Mountain Wild. We’ll finish the day off with a barbecue at Woodland Valley Campground with food provided by Catskill Rose. This is an outstanding trail, with many nice features and views. It’s a moderate hike with an initial ascent and then rolling terrain throughout. It will take approximately 6 hours to complete at a leisurely pace. We will shuttle people back to their cars at Storehouse or the trailhead. Please wear appropriate footwear and bring lunch and water.

The doors at Storehouse will open at 9am and we will depart for the trailhead at 9:30. The hike will start at 10am SHARP from the trailhead at the end of Lane St. in Phoenicia. The barbecue will start at 4pm. You DO NOT need to participate in the hike to go to the barbecue.
