Hike Vroman's Nose

Rate this Adventure New York Vromans Nose Trailhead

Added by Rebecca Nichols

Vroman's Nose is one of most popular hiking destinations in the area. Hike this local landmark in the Schoharie Creek Valley.

Once you leave the parking area, the first 0.25 miles you ascend up an "old woods" road. You will then head left into the forest. At approximately 0.4 miles you will come to a junction. The trail on the left is where you will return from. You will also start to notice aqua blazes among the trees. These blazes mark the Long Path which travels 350 plus miles from New Jersey to New York.

Once you reach the top take in the views but also take note there are steep drop-offs. Though this is an easy family hike, keep a close eye on little ones at the top. The summit features a flat area known as "The Dance Floor".

Just under the 1.0 mile mark you will reach the last outcrop (great picture opportunity). Here you will also start your descent, shortly after you will turn left. Follow the level trail back to the first junction you encountered. You will then return the way you came.

Added by Rebecca Nichols

I hike to push my limits both mentally and physically, take in the beauty of the great outdoors, and just to get away from it all. Every chance I get you will find me in the mountains, on a kayak or ending my day by the campfire!
