• Preface: This announcement is in regard to a possible additional event. Additional events never affect or replace Harriman Hikers regular Sunday Hikes. Harriman Hikers hikes EVERY Sunday, year-round, rain or shine (or snow!* 😉 – just as we have for over 30 years.
  • POSSIBLE Additional Event: Winter Outdoor Activities at Fahnestock Winter Park MAP near Cold Spring, NY. Call (845) 225-3998 for more info
  • Organizer: YOU
  • Details: …if local weather reports indicate there could be considerable snow on the ground and you are not going to work and the roads are clear (* it is NOT recommended that ANYONE venture out on the roads under potentially unsafe conditions) …

…there is a more or less standing invitation to join others that might be interested in cross-country skiing, snow shoeing or tubing at Fahnestock Winter Park (FWP) aka Clarence Fahnestock State Park.

Weather / conditions permitting, FWP offers groomed cross-country ski trails, snowshoeing and snow tubing opportunities as well as possibility to rent equipment as may be needed – also, (again, depending on conditions) the lake at the park may be available for ice skating.

  2. Strongly suggested to call first to check conditions at Fahnestock and make sure they are open. Call (845) 225-3998 for more info.
  3. Any activities as might be suggested are optional / at participant’s discretion and it is up to YOU to organize your outing – in other words it is up to YOU to call the park, contact your friends and get yourselves up there and home. Please DO NOT contact Harriman Hikers – the hike leaders are not necessarily involved in any FWP activities and have no additional information to offer.
  4. IF the park is open – cross country ski packages (skis, boots, poles) generally will be available for rental from the park as well as snow shoe and tube rentals. There is a heated lodge and usually hot food is available for purchase. Contact the park for rates and availability. Contact the park for hours and other details.
  5. IF the park is open you will almost always find plenty of friendly, outdoor-like-minded company to enjoy the outdoor opportunities the park offers.
  6. If you are interested in cross-country skiing, but havent done it before, do some googling using search terms such as “cross country ski” or “xc-ski” – there is a wealth of info on the internet regarding basic xc-ski technique. There also may be experienced skiers out for a day of skiing that might be happy to give you a pointer or two – ask around people you might meet at FWP… ditto snow shoeing…
