"Meet the Gunks" ramble.

As this route was created prior to the opening of the High Bridge at Poughkeepsie, and the route follows the Hudson Valley Rail Trail, I took the liberty of moving the beginning and end off the Mid Hudson Bridge and onto the rail trail at the High Bridge, but only on the RWGPS route and cue sheet. HS

Includes stops at Minnewaska SP and Palentown. Route goes over Mohonk on 6A (or alternate route not on RidewithGPS cue sheet). Advise reviewing route on map before traveling for turns. Check train times of Metro North.
