Fall Colors Hudson Valley Peters Kill Abandoned Hydro Plant & Waterfalls Hike


We have a new addition to an old favorite hike.  Join us for a beautiful Fall day out of the city for an amazing hike with a trip back in time to an abandoned hydro electric plant nestled in the gorge of the lower Peter's Kill Trail with 3 separate waterfalls and a walk to the towering Awosting Falls.  The trail mixes a bit of path hiking, carriage paths and a little rock scrambling.  

Your day will begin with the beautiful ride up the Hudson River Train line on Metro North.  Your guide will pick you up in Poughkeepsie, NY to start you adventure!   We'll pick up a snack and head over to the hike.  Along the way you will be treated to waterfalls, beautiful rock formations and breathtaking views.

Hike level: 7 out of 10. You will be walking on carriage paths, hiking trails and over the rocks along the river then a small rock scramble up to Awosting Trail. Approx 3 miles total.  Please note that some of this trail is not an official designated trail.

Following the hike we will stop by a local farm stand and The Bad Seed Hard Cider Mill.

You will be back on the 5:54 train to NYC.
