A spectacular journey through the Dwarf Pitch Pine Barrens of the Badlands and up close views of Verkeeder Falls. Hiking to the highest point in the Shawangunks we will take in spectacular views of the Catskills and surrounding area and may even get to pick wild blueberries from along the trail. We finish the hike with a tour of "the ice caves" which was once a popular tourist attraction. This is a long hike which is why it has a moderate-strenuous rating but there's not a lot of elevation change.
