Doodletown Bridle Path
sam. 6 avril à 15:30
Hike Description: "The scenic Doodletown Bridle Path was first opened to the public as a horse and ski trail in 1935. Nestled between Bear and Dunderberg Mountains, it circles the historic former hamlet of Doodletown. Although Doodletown has been unoccupied since 1965, the valley in which it is located was first settled as far back as 1792. While most of the Bridle Path is in good condition, runners and skiers should note that there are a few badly eroded and wet sections" (Circuit Hikes in Harriman). Directions: Take the Palisades Interstate Parkway north to Exit 19. Turn right on to Seven Lakes Drive, continue for .5 mile, and turn right onto an unmarked paved road that leads in a short distance to a parking area--the first right turn you will come to on Seven Lakes Drive when heading north. Hike Summary: Distance: 5 miles, give or take Type: Loop Total Elevation Gain: 400 feet (my guess) Maximum Elevation: 600 feet (my guess) Advertised Hiking Time: 3 hours Actual Hiking Time: 4 hours, plus time for lunch, conversation, and picture taking Features: Historic roads, scenic valleys, Doodletown Reservoir.

A new date will be scheduled. Gear: It is recommended you wear sturdy hiking boots, and bring trekking poles, a light backpack, a liter of water (or more), bug spray, a compass, snacks, and lunch. Bring several layers of clothing that can be added or removed as weather conditions warrant. Optional gear might include sunglasses, hat, scarf, light rain jacket, and binoculars. I sometimes bring my MSR Pocket Rocket 2 stove kit, especially when the weather is cool, which allows me to make hot coffee or cider; and when the mood strikes my fancy--a hot lunch. I especially like Tasty Bite’s Indian Madras Lentils, which I can make in 10 minutes on my Pocket Rocket.
