Animal Tracks along the Stream’s Edge at Minnewaska

Minnewaska State Park Preserve


Join Nick Martin, Park Educator, for a combination recreational and interpretive hike along Lower Awosting Carriage Road and Mossy Glen Footpath. This approximately three-mile hike parallels the Peter's Kill stream along the footpath section and has many lovely views of this stream. The carriage road section of the hike is easy walking, returning us to our starting point. Along our way, we will look for clues of wild animals using this habitat, in the form of tracks and footprints in the snow. A limited number of snowshoes are available for participants to borrow for this program from the Education Department. Please plan to arrive by 9:10 a.m. if you will be borrowing snowshoes. If there is insufficient snow cover, this program will be offered as a hike. If conditions are icy, participants are encouraged to bring Micro Spikes or other ice traction devices. All visitors, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a mask when inside buildings. All unvaccinated participants are encouraged to wear face coverings and keep a minimum six-foot distance away from others who are not part of their immediate household when outside. Meet in the Lower Parking Area. Pre-registration is required by calling Minnewaska at 845-255-0752.
