July 14 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Meet trip leader George Moxham (email@example.com ) at 8:00 a.m. at the Kingston park and ride at the intersection of Washington Ave., State Rt. 28, I-587, and I-87 to journey to this Natural National Landmark. Created by geologic upheavals when the Taconic and Berkshire ranges were formed, this hundred foot high bedrock outcropping introduces visitors to a rugged and exotic landscape that also supports 800 species of plants (including one of North America’s greatest diversities of ferns) while offering terrific mountain vistas. There are five miles of trails on the property that travel through transitional forest and neighbor beaver ponds as well and are rated as moderate. Pack a lunch and wear sturdy, comfortable shoes for hiking. There is a $5 admission to the property.
The field trips of JBNHS are oriented to nature study. They are free and open to the public. We do, however, sometimes visit sites that charge admission fees, which are the responsibility of the participants. Children are very welcome on field trips, but pets are not. Although there is a brief courtesy waiting period for latecomers, the meeting times are important: please arrive in time to sign up with the leader.
