Ramsey Conklin Cabin Site

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 moderate to strenuous. Participants must be in good walking shape and wearing sturdy hiking boots or shoes. Bring water and lunch or snacks.
Cancellation policy: Due to the overwhelming popularity of the Hikes through History, registration fees are non-refundable unless the program is canceled by the HSRC. Space is limited for safety. A waiting list will be compiled, and spaces that become available will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Only those who have made full payment can be accommodated.
