Kakiat First Season November Snow

Kakiat County Park,
Rockland Co.,
New York

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

Total Time: 22 minutes
Estimated Distance: 0.9 miles

Pros: Very scenic in fresh snow
Cons: None

We had an unusual November snowstorm. The forecast had called for a coating to an inch of snow and ice, but it snowed 10 inches in a rare November Nor'Easter that crippled the roads and messed up everybody's evening commute. The morning after the storm it had warmed up, and the sun came out. I took the opportunity to go on a quick hike at Kakiat County Park to enjoy the season's first snow, prior to heading off to work. I parked in the Kakiat parking lot, and took the short Old Mill Trail in its entirety, to the Kakiat Trail, when I took to the end back to my car.
