    Sorry I couldn't make it guys, $60 on gas to hike is rough, looks like fun though. I hit up Chenango Valley State Park after work yesterday, 5 miles, dead tired when I got home, a couple blisters too.

    Wo started out with JimG and his son. 2 time hiking ever for his son. Wow he full of energy at young age. Sunday sept 72014 perfect weather 75 high on the mountain. How Humidy 45 % maybe. Great high top hiking boots oh what a difference. no pain at all first time no pain killers taken by me today didnt need that. Got to due a lovely hike same way as first time parked at 1030 they charge everyone in the car is the rule except for kids under certain age.Upper lot was almost full but still a few spots left , pulled in ticket guy sees my season pass asks if were all members i lie and say yes he lets us all in. Started down nice red rated old trail half way to the carraige road. Walked down some nice rocky edges then 30 minutes in get to the awesome little pond and falls that ppl swim in. Went over to parking lot where i never park my car yet. Took high Peters kill trail . This used to be a ski area years ago you can see why with nice slope of the terrain. Got to where it ends in about 30 minutes or so. His son was impressed I think. Ends where nice rocks formations all over so beatiful OMG ...!1!!!! Rocks cool weather little sun penerates the high trees here but you can see it when you look up. Walked over other way to boulder city on the mountain. Jims son goes further up the hill then either of us did the first time. All hands and feet are needed here in a good way. Walking carefully saw some rock climbers with beds on their backs for sleep coming down this way. Then walked back to trail that is blue and goes to Minnseka state amzing ny parking lots for nice easy some really good cardion trail up and no pain. Got to the spot of the day . nice maybe half a mile up to here you can See the Catskiills lots of mountain tops and the ridge of what we just climed and what is a head. lots of rocks to take saftey break if anyone does that or drink or eat or relax and talk and chill. Not sure how much further it is to Minn. my guess is 2 more miles or so. views were outsanding on this hike . then hike down to same way came here nice and easy to last 10 mintues that some great cardion on nice steep steep rock alll energy gone but 5 mintutes down the nice walkway by some ppl and dogs that were petted and not barking. all animals and ppl are welcome to come and do these great NY fun . Such a lovely day 5 hours perfect now I have time to get ready for work. pictures in a little bit.
    The trail follows the ridge high above the Peters Kill for about a mile, climbing gradually, with many views from rock outcrops overlooking the valley below. Although the stream is not visible, the roar of the water can be clearly heard. The scars on the hillside across the stream are remnants of ski trails established in 1964 as part of the Ski Minne resort and abandoned in 1978.
    Peters kill was open for skiing from:
