NY-Montreal Trekkers Biked, Hiked, & Then Swam in the Hotel Pool
The New York to Montreal Trekkers had a busy fourth of July! Today we woke up at Croton Point Park, ate a hearty breakfast of instant oatmeal, then got on the road at 9 am. After about 20 miles on the road, we had lunch at a store where your Appalachian Trail crosses Route 9, and had some interesting conversations with some through hikers. After lunch we stopped for ice cream in Cold Spring, then did some hiking of our own on Breakneck Ridge, overlooking the Hudson River. We finished our day with a short ride North to our hotel in Fishkill, for a dinner of pita pizzas and a well deserved dip in the pool.
