This is a great point-to-point along the AT that requires two cars - one at the AT train stop on Rt. 22 in Pawling/Hurd Corners and the other at the start of the hike, on Rt. 55 in West Pawling/Poughquag. This hike will take you by Nuclear Lake, up to a scenic overview at Cat Rocks and then past the Dover Oak, up Corbin Hill and finally down across the Great Swamp on a scenic boardwalk with lots of wildlife. Great combination of scenery and lots of shade for most of the hike. 8.3 miles total.Show more
