Land Trust sponsors Oct. 18 trek to river

The Hudson Highlands Land Trust has organized a challenging three-hour hike to Castle Rock on Sunday, Oct. 18, as a fundraiser for its Take-a-Hike! program. Castle Rock caretaker Chip Marks will share the secrets of the landmark home built by railroad magnate William H. Osborn in 1880, then lead the group in the footsteps of the Continental Army as it hiked to the river.

The cost is $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12. Participants should meet at the Garrison Metro-North train station at 10 a.m.; a shuttle will be provided to Castle Rock. Registration is required; call 845-424-3358, ext. 6, or email [email protected].

  1. I passed the park today on my way down Rt 9D-came home and googled site-and SO sorry I did not know about hike! I will check the Hudson Highlands site, but wonder if this event may be repeated?
