NY - Mid-Hudson Valley Chapter
I have lived in the Hudson Valley for most of my life, with two years in Pennsylvania and 9 months in Florida, I always yearned to be back in the Catskills. I can't remember a time when hiking has not been part of my life. My parents took me and my three siblings on Hikes and my friends and I have many stories from our various adventures in the Hills. I have accomplished the requirements for the 3500 Club. This means I have hiked all the peaks in the Catskills over 3,500 feet with four hiked again during the winter. Although I am proud of this accomplishment, my favorite treks now are those that have a trail to follow with a reward at the end such as a glorious view or a waterfall to rest near. I found the Trail Dames since my husband often works weekends and I wanted a non-competitive group to hike with. As soon as I took my first hike with Laura of the Capital District, I knew we needed a chapter in the Catskill area. I am so excited to share these Beauties with those that are ready for fun relaxation fresh air and friends.
See you on the trail,
