I'm looking to get out for a overnight trip on the "AT" around the Harriman, NY area (Elk Pen as a starting point). Anyone else here interested in a winter overnight trip?

I'm interested. Keep me posted.

I'm headed out this weekend further up the trail in southern MA if you're tempted.

Might be an option. Depends on the date I have some Bdays in Feb.

So there are two dates available for this outing,
choice #1 is Feb 9,10 and choice #2 is Feb. 23,24 so if anyone has a preference let us know.
Basically this is a out and back trip, the plan is to meet at 10am at the Elk Pen parking lot off Arden Valley road by I-87 Southfields and hike the "AT" north towards the Fingerboard Shelter area and set up camp (about 5 miles), this may vary slightly due to winter trail conditions. We will return back to the Elk Pen by 1pm the next day. This area has many trail options available so if the group decides its wants more or less hiking or camping just let us know the plan is flexible.
So who is in for this trip?

9-10 works better for me but I'm flexible.

Thanks for putting this out there.

update, well after sorting through my gear last night I have decided that I will be doing overnight trips on both dates of Feb 9,10 and Feb. 23,24, both trips will be on the "AT" in the Monroe/Southfields NY area.

Sounds good.

I haven't looked at any maps of the area in a while. If possible, any interest in setting up for a car further up/down the trail and shuttling rather than an out & back?

sure, we could leave a car at a few different places (rather not post where we will leave the cars) but the weather may affect what we do, (this trip is a go except for a torrential downpour or a tornado). this area got a few inches of snow last night with more snow/rain and freezing temps expected throughout the week according to the local weather channel so a icy trail may make it interesting. depending upon the temperatures water may be a issue so be prepared to melt ice.
At this point, all planning on attending this trip should "PM" me so I can get a headcount and I'll work on the shuttling logistics.

I want to get on the AT this month. Will have to decide tomorrow.

beechnut,
I have done that section of the AT, but this might make a good intro hike.
This week is moving by fast.
Next week would be better 3/9.

GG,
Would you be interested in doing this section ?

Sat March2, I am doing a 12mile day hike with a NY hiking group.
Was on the waitlist, and a slot opened : this is a group of 19 possible hiking partners. Looking for 2-week-AT-section-hike partners.

GG,
May still be possible to hike with you on March9, if that is still open.

beechnut,
Therefore will not meetup on Sat, but we may cross paths on the Harriman section of the AT. Say hello if you see our big group.

My idea of a group size is 2 to 5, but this might bring good results.
