Secret Land of Trout & Berries - Strawberry Solstice (6/18-6/20)
We consider this place to be sacred: a stretch of virgin, old-growth forest wilderness at much lower elevations than it is typically found in the Catskills. Dotted with beaver ponds and brambles and flush with blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries, these lush meadows cut by streams filled with trout is truly paradise. Discovered many years ago, untouched by man, and not marked on any maps or trail guide, we’ve kept its location a closely guarded secret, and though not too difficult to reach, it has remained unspoiled.
This trip should be in peak strawberry season and we’ll be celebrating the Summer Solstice!
Cardio Intensity: Moderate.
