Castle Rock Hike

This event is no longer on sale.

Thursday August 17

1:30 PM  –  3:30 PM

The most celebrated ascent in Blue Mountain Lake, this walk, unlike most of the others in our Nature Walk series, is best described as a hike. The climb to the summit of Castle Rock does not require technical mountaineering skills, but it's steep all the same. On a clear or partly clear day, the reward is one of the finest views in all the Adirondacks. Participants can expect vigorous exercise and will need to use extra caution on the summit, which is bounded by steep drop-offs.

Registration is required for this hike. 

From the Adirondack Experience, drive downhill a very short distance until you see Maple Lodge Road (and a sign for the Minnowbrook Conference Center) on the right. Turn here and follow Maple Lodge Road. The trailhead and parking area are located at the end of the road, just past Hemlock Hall Resort.
