High atop the gorgeous rocky outcroppings of the Shawangunk Ridge live pretty little pitch pines and vast reaching views that are beyond compare. On this 10-mile hike, we’ll spend the day exploring the highest part of the Ridge, enjoying the scenery that stretches from the Kittatinnies in New Jersey to the Hudson Highlands and the Catskills. We’ll walk beside a sky-top lake, marvel at a tall waterfall and soak up the smells of the native dwarf pines. Time permitting, we’ll grab dinner at a local favorite restaurant before heading home to the big city.
