New York - Plotter Kill Nature Preserve

Hey, ladies! Here's another opportunity to explore the waterfalls of the upper Hudson Valley/Capital Region! Pack snowshoes because unless there's some kind of winter miracle, I think the snow is here to stay! This is going to be a low-key, flexible opportunity to become more comfortable with using your snow shoes on the trail. We'll play it by ear and adjust our plans as needed. For now, the plan is to do the entire 5-6 mile loop (the distance varies in every resource I check on this site!). 

This Hike is led by GWH Ambassador Kristie!
