Kakiat Last Season Snow

Kakiat County Park
Rockland Co.,
New York

Hiking Trails:
Old Mill Trail: Blue blaze
Kakiat Trail: White blaze

Total time: 24 minutes
Estimated Distance: 0.9 miles
Level of Difficulty: Very easy
Level of Recommendation: Recommended for a short hike

This seems to be the last snow of the season. The previous week had seen temperatures up to 50 most of the week, and much of the massive snowcover had melted. This new snowstorm was a wet, fluffy snow of about 5 inches, and I took advantage of going on a short and easy walk during the snowstorm.

I parked in the Kakiat parking area, crossed the bridge over the Mahwah River, took the Old Mill Trail around the loop to the Kakiat Trail, and then took the Kakiat trail back. I do this walk quite frequently, but due to the nature of this being the last snowstorm of the season, I felt the need to document and share my walk this particular time.
