Regardless of the weather, the Hudson Valley shows us her beauty all year round. The spring brings us blossomed flowers while summer rolls in with green trees and glistening hills. The Hudson Valley’s fall shows us how we can change along with the season and enjoy the fall foliage. I have learned to like winter more than I used to. As much as I thrive in the summer, we can all learn something from the change of seasons. The winter’s beauty is still and glowing. The cool, crisp air makes it refreshing to go on a leisure hike or walk.

There’s going to be a guided walk this weekend at Sam’s Point (one of my favorite places). I went to Sam’s Point a few summers ago to check out the ice caves and it was super a cool experience. The grounds are enchanting with miles and miles of views. From their trails to extensive history, Sam’s Point has a lot to offer.

On March 16, 2021, from 10AM-12:30PM, grab your gear and head on out into the woods. Put on your hiking boots for this three-mile walk and check out the breathtaking views of Lake Maratanza. In addition to bringing masks, be sure to grab water, a snack, and always a change of clothes while on an adventure.

The meetup location is at Sam’s Point Visitor Center and pre-registration is required. If you are interested in joining this fun-filled, outdoor adventure, call Sam’s Point at 845-647-7989.

There will be a small $10 parking fee per vehicle. If you have an existing Empire pass then you can use that for your space.

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
