First Day Hike modified due to cold
January 1 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Weather forecasts are predicting extremely cold temperatures on January 1st. With safety in mind, the Walkway’s First Day Hike has been modified. We will NOT be hiking as a group to the center. There will be staff and volunteers at each entrance to distribute NYS Parks string backpacks and hot chocolate (first come, first served). We do not recommend bringing pets — it is too cold for them as well!
PLEASE NOTE: Starting January 1, the Walkway elevator will be closed for the season. It will reopen in the spring.
Location: Walkway East (Poughkeepsie) and West (Highland) Entrances
