Hiking and snowshoeing are great ways to stay fit and enjoy the beauty of the Hudson Valley in winter. The absence of foliage opens up vistas not visible in summer. All you need is proper equipment, shoes and clothes. This program will give you information about how to stay warm and comfortable outdoors, hiking tips, what gear you will need, where to hike, and information about hiking groups in the area. We will bring hiking equipment and apparel recommended for hiking. The session will cover how to select hikes suitable for your abilities, introduce you to trail maps, and books and resources available at your local library on the subject. Lalita Malik, Chair of Mid-Hudson Chapter, Adirondack Mountain Club, will be presenting the program. Lalita also leads adventure trips and local hikes for ADK; her email is LalitaMalik@aol.com.
