Distance: Roughly 5 miles
Level of difficulty: Moderate
Come explore the beauty of the forest during winter time. Come cross-country ski the KRT from The Mountain Top Historical Society.
We will meet at the parking area at The Mountain Top Historical Society and cross-country ski the KRT. We will then cross over the new bridge over the creek and continue on the horse trail to the South Lake Road. We will follow South Lake road to the beach parking area and then if folks want to continue on to the Catskill Mountain House Site. From here we will retrace our path, following the South Lake Road to the horse trail back to the KRT and finally ending at The Mountain Top Historical Site. Folks who join can make this as short or as long of a cross-country ski and I am allotting 4 hours.
Folks wishing to participate on this cross-country ski need to bring their own skis. At this time MTHS does not have the ability to rent cross-country skis but if this proves to be popular we can look into rentals in the future.
What to bring with you.
- Snacks or a light lunch
- Warm clothes
- Dress in layers (Hat + Gloves too)
- Hand and Foot warmers
- Second pair of dry socks
