Pigeon Hole Hike set for Saturday

Claryville — A hike along the beautiful Pigeon Hole Trail is planned at Frost Valley YMCA on Saturday, June 20 starting at 1 p.m. This hike will follow Pigeon Brook upstream for a mile before climbing to the Sequoia Loop trail and returning to Frost Valley. 
“Though a scenic and interesting trail, it is nevertheless an obscure and hidden gem of the Frost Valley trail network. If the hike sounds familiar to some of you, I actually published a guide to the Pigeon Hole Trail in the fall ’08 edition of The Forester. This is one of my favor routes at Frost Valley,” noted hike leader Reid Bauer.
The total hike distance is about 2.5 miles with 300 feet of elevation gain. It should take about two-three hours to complete the hike. Participants should wear appropriate footwear and moisture-wicking clothing.
Reid is Frost Valley’s natural resources and environmental science coordinator. For additional information or to register, please call Reid at 845 985-2291, ext. 397, e-mail: rbauer@frostvalley.org. Space is limited to 30, so interested hikers are asked to pre-register.

Frost Valley YMCA is located at 2000 Frost Valley Road, eight miles from Claryville and 13 miles from Big Indian.
