A dozen of us began our ride at historic New Paltz, mile marker 9 on the north leg of the 23 mile Wallkill Valley Rail Trail. We headed north 7 miles to the scenic Rosendale Trestle for pictures.  In the 18th century Rosendale was a center for mining and smelting gypsum which is used in plaster, chalk and drywall.  Along our bike bath we visited the caves where it was mined and the cement furnaces that were built into the rock walls surrounding this town.

After we made our way back we drove 10 minutes to the Tuthilltown Distillery where we enjoyed a tour and tasting of delicious whiskey, bourbon, vodka, gin and liqueurs. We also had lunch there. Eight of us still had enough juice (literally) to continue taking in more fall foliage so we headed west to the famous Sam’s Point lookout.  After hiking about 3/4 mile uphill we delighted in a spectacular fall sunset while snacking on sumptuous pumpkin bread that Lisa Hibbs had baked.

A great fall day had by all.
