Biking in the Huber Warbler Preserve

On a Saturday in October, I brought my mountain bike back to the Huber Warbler Preserve to see if I could finally reach the back trails. On all my hikes, I never got much farther than the creek crossing. The trails are not great for biking. The sand on the main roads doesn't give great tire traction, and on the smaller side trails, which don't get much use, you're mostly riding on close-cropped foliage stems.

Still, the leaves were pretty in the fall, and it was pleasant enough. A…

High Point State Park - Appalachian and Monument Trails - 10/5/14

We hadn't hiked this route in over 5 years, so it was time to head back and try to spot a little foliage.

Trail surface: ranges from dirt woods roads to somewhat rocky…

Explore an ice cave, a waterfall, and enjoy spectacular views of the Shawangunks region and the Catskill mountains.

Seasonal Notes: The ice caves fill with ice and are closed until passable in spring or summer – but by late summer won’t have much or any ice in them. The falls can dwindle to a trickle in the…

backpacking Stockbridge Mountain

My hiking partner wife finally agreed to backpack with me on an overnight and it went so well that I thought I would share.  We parked at Lake Tiorati in Harriman State Park, and backpacked mainly on the Long Path about 3.5 miles to the summit of Stockbridge Mountain, where we found lots of tent spots and several fire rings.  There is a manmade shelter there, as well as a…
