Jan. 14 talk focuses on state’s Long Path
MOUNT TREMPER >> Author Ken Posner will discuss his book, “Running the Long Path: A 350-mile Journey of Discovery in New York’s Hudson Valley” at 1 p.m. Jan. 14 at the Maurice D. Hinchey Catskill Interpretive Center, 5096 state Route 28.
Known as New York’s greatest trail, the 358-mile Long Path stretches from New York City to Thacher State Park outside Albany, crossing through the Palisades, Shawangunks, Catskills and the Schoharie Valley.
The presentation will focus on history of the Long Path, including historical figures like Walt Whitman and John Burroughs, landscape images by photographer Steve Aaron, discussion of planning and gear, and some of Posner’s adventures during his 2013 record-setting thru-run of the trail.
Posner is a financial analyst, ultra-runner, and board member and volunteer trail supervisor for the NY-NJ Trail Conference.
