Stage 117

⇐ Link to the previous stage: 116 - APPALACHIAN TRAIL - NEW YORK - Sections 7.1 and 6. From Dennytown Road to Canopus Lake, Shenandoah Mountain and RPH Shelter
⇒ Link to the next stage: 118 - APPALACHIAN TRAIL - NEW YORK -Section 3 and 4.1. From NY-22 Pawling to Cats Rocks, Nuclear Lake and I-84 Stormville Mt. Rd

Tour through sections 5 and 4.2 of the Appalachian Trail ( Appalachian Trail ), passing through the state of New York (United States), from south to north.

The stage runs from the RPH Shelter (Ralph's Peak Hiker's Cabin), located next to Hortontown Road, very close to the intersection of the trail with the Taconic State Parkway, to Stormville Mountain Road, next to I-84.

It is a short section, but it runs through a rather rocky terrain, with small and continuous ascents and descents, crossing the open corridor in a very populated area and dotted with small farms, houses and roads.

Most of the route passes through the western slope of Hosner Mountain, and along the crest of Stormville Mountain (1,056 feet), with great views to the north (the fertile plain of Fishkill Plains, with the populations of East Fishkill, Stormville and Hopewell Junction) and to the west (Hudson River Valley, Shawangunks and Catskills).

Already on the small summit of Stormville Mountain, we find a small herd of goats, without a shepherd, something that is not usual in the routes of the OT, and even less in the state of New York.

In the final part of the stage, from the intersection with route 52, the path approaches the urbanizations of the area, following roads and asphalted tracks, until crossing the I-84 highway, by an elevated bridge that leads directly to the junction of the AT with Stormville Mountain Road, where the day ends.
