The Health & Wellness Steering Committee of the Chamber will host a hike up Mount Beacon in October to enjoy the beautifully scenic views and cool fall weather.
Join us on Saturday, October 20 to learn hiking safety information and then hike up the mountain. This hike will last approximately three hours, starting at 9:00 and will include tips on how to avoid injury, proper stretching techniques, and hiking safety.
Participants are encouraged to bring plenty of water in non-disposable containers to carry while hiking, as well as an energizing snack. Proper hiking shoes or boots are required. The hike is open to anyone – frequent breaks can be taken along the way to rest and to enjoy the scenery. This is a challenging hike, covering about 4.4 miles of steep and rocky terrain.
Parking area and trailhead are located at the intersection of Route 9D and Howland Avenue in the City of Beacon at 788 Wolcott Ave., Beacon, NY 12508.
The activities and programming of the Health & Wellness Club are sponsored by: Health Quest.
