Hudson Valley Ramble Offers Hikes, Biking, Boating and More on 3 Weekends

It’s time to amble toward a ramble: The 11th Annual Hudson Valley Ramble begins this weekend (Sept. 10-12) with outdoor activities spread across three consecutive weekends in a spectacular setting.
       The Ramble is sponsored by the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area (HRVNHA), with assistance of the Hudson River Valley Greenway, N.Y. State Department of Environmental Conservation Hudson River Estuary Program, and about 200 participating organizations and sites. It features a variety of guided walking, hiking, biking and kayaking opportunities as well as visits to historic places and estuary exploration. Options in Philipstown include a moderate, 2-hour hike to Lost Pond, part of the historic modern home of industrial designer Russell Wright, on Sept. 19;  and three events on Sept. 25: a hike from the Garrison train station south through the Arden Point section of Hudson Highlands State Park and Glenclyffe property to cross Route 9D and head upwards to the summit of Sugarloaf;  a walk featuring the  Boscobel House and Gardens Woodland Trails; and a Constitution Island Family Day with boat  rides, horse and carriage rides, a chance to learn about birds of prey, and other activities.  
       Most Ramble events are free and many are family oriented. Details can be found on the Ramble website:
       A federal site established in 1996, the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area is funded through the National Park Service and responsible for recognizing, preserving, protecting, and interpreting the cultural and natural resources of the Hudson Valley. The Hudson River Valley Greenway is the management entity for the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area.
