The Historical Society of Rockland County Invites You to Join Us for a

Hike through History to the
Ramsey Conklin Cabin Site

When: Saturday, September 28, 2019, 9 am-2 pm (Rain date: Sunday, September 29)
Where: The hike will begin at the RAMAPO EQUESTRIAN CENTER, 1152 Haverstraw Road (Route 202), Wesley Hills
Price: $25/person.Price includes guided hike and a book about Rockland County history.

In the 1950s, a journalist wrote: "Ramsey Conklin and his tattered brood for 66 years roamed the Ramapos and never got any further from the Conklin clearing than Haverstraw.” The family lived in the cabin from 1799 until they were evicted by the Palisades Interstate Park Commission in 1935 to finish the construction of Pine Meadow Lake.

This special guided hike will visit Pine Meadow Lake and the cabin site. There we will be met by descendants of Ramsey Conklin who will share their memories of growing up in one of the “lost hamlets”  of Harriman State Park.

This 5+ mile hike (round trip) is rated strenuous, with a steep uphill section. Participants must be in good walking shape and wearing sturdy hiking boots or shoes. Bring water and lunch or snacks.
