Hike Shaupeneak Ridge Led by Mike Lanspery. Shaupeneak Ridge, near Esopus, NY South of Kingston is part of the Marlboro Mountains, the ridge that extends between the Hudson River and the Shawangunks. This is our first hike in the Marlboro Mountains. Mike tells us the planned route of 3.25 miles over all or parts of 3 trails should be easy to moderate, with views of the Hudson River. More information about the Shaupeneak Ridge Park can be found at Scenic Hudson's website and at the NYNJ Trails Conference website. Meet at the Esopus Fire Dept parking area 1142 Broadway, Esopus at 10:00 am. Return around 3:00 pm. Bring lunch, water, and appropriate hiking shoes.
