As the wonderful writer Edward Abbey so aptly wrote, "Wilderness is not a luxury, but a necessity of the human spirit and as vital to our lives as water and good bread." This offering is located just 90 minutes from Manhattan. Close to New Paltz, Gardiner, the many farm to table venues, farm stands, vineyards, craft breweries and all we love in the Hudson Valley!
