LATE FALL ON THE BYRDCLIFFE/MT. GUARDIAN TRAILS
Come to the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild-sponsored hike of the Byrdcliffe/Mt.Guardian Trails with DEC-licensed hiking guide, Dave Holden. The trail is very steep in sections, requiring sturdy shoes with good ankle-support (waterproof is always best). Another must-have is water, for yourself and your pet (dogs are allowed but leash-only). Heavy, steady rains and/or a thunderstorm will automatically cancel the hike. Hike starts at 10:00 am and average 2 1/2 to 3 hours in duration, meeting at the Byrdcliffe Theater Parking Lot. Read more
