Come join us for a hike and meet some interesting visitors!

Michelle Coleman and her husband are traveling around the country and visiting Camino communities nationwide. They have walked the Camino Francés and Camino Portuguese and plan to hike in 2022. We’ll hike the gorge trail at Watkins Glen and have dinner with them this Friday.

WHEN: 5:00pm, Friday 30th July

LOCATION: Outside the visitor’s center at Watkins Glen State Park on the main drag.

SCHEDULE: We’ll hike the gorge trail (probably will take us 90 mins). Then we’ll walk over to Jerlandos or Scuteri’s Bakery where you can buy food and pastries then we’ll wander back over to the park entrance and eat and talk. If it rains we’ll eat inside at Jerlando’s. We’d like to also do a shell ceremony for those who are planning fall caminos after dinner, if possible.

Please come prepared for summer hiking with a rain shell in case of showers. Heavy rain/thunderstorms will cause an immediate adjournment for dinner inside, drizzle will NOT cancel.
