Hike at Onteora Lake scheduled for Dec. 3
The Woodstock Land Conservancy is hosting a hike at Onteora Lake and at the remnants of the area’s bluestone quarrying on Dec. 3 from 10 a.m. to noon.
Located six miles west of Kingston, Onteora Lake is within the Bluestone Wild Forest, located at the eastern edge of the Catskill Park and hidden.
The hike will be a 2.5 mile stroll along the small and scenic Onteora Lake, then a walk farther into the forest to identify signs from the region’s past and significant bluestone quarrying.
Organizers advise participants to pack a picnic lunch.
The tour will be led by Robert Drake.
The event is free and open to the public. All ages are welcome.
The event will be canceled in case of heavy rain. Please wear appropriate footwear and clothing for winter hiking.
