Carpool or meet us at the Peterskill lot on the right as you drive up the mountain. Drive-up options for people who do not walk (are more limited than our original plan to go to Minnewaska).   To offer or ask for a ride, please contact Sarah at or Telephone 845-257-2624.

We had to shift to another part of the State Park (Peterskill) because Minnewaska is only open for skiing.
