I have not had the opportunity to hike in the Shawangunks much this season, and was glad to finally get out on this nice summer day with some of my good friends and old hiking partners. We parked at the northern area of the park and took the Red Loop Trail down to the Peters Kill, and walked along the side of the creek to the Peters Kill Trail, which we took to the High Peters Kill Trail.

We took the High Peters Kill Trail up the mountain, to the view, and then continued to the view at Dickie Barre. We then turned around and took the Bull Wheel Trail back to the beginning of the hike to the Red Loop and then back to the parking area.
