Kakiat Last Season Snow Walk

Kakiat County Park,
Rockland Co.,
New York

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

Total Time: 23 minutes
Estimated Distance: 1.0 miles

Pros: Scenic with melting layer of snow
Cons: None

The winter season of 2019-2020 featured hardly any snow at all. This spring snow event was not much of a snow, but the ground was covered and left just enough for me to appreciate it. I took a quick stroll in Kakiat in the morning before the snow all melted shortly afterwards. I parked in the parking area, crossed the bridge over the Mahwah River, and then took the Old Mill Trail loop around back to the Kakiat Trail. I then walked along the meadow past the gazebo and along the path on the side of the Mahwah River, back to the bridge and back to my car.
