Taconic Hereford Multiple Use Area

August 19, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm



No need for car pooling. Finally had a reason to get down there and check out the parking situation (I’m 105 miles away). Parking is at a dead end on Tyrrel Road with 6 spaces and room for 10-15 cars to park along the road.

If coming from the north Рtake the Taconic Parkway  РTyrrel road is 13 miles south of the Bulls Head road exit. Make a left and cross the median(be careful). Go to the end. About 1.5 miles.

If coming from the South – take the Taconic Parkway – about 7 miles north of the Route 55 exit (Poughkeepsie). Make a right and go to the end.

19 spots still available

Please reserve a spot. RSVP mushroom@hvlimo.biz Limited to 24 people – paid members will be given priority. There is limited parking. A carpool option will most likely be coordinated as 4 cars per parking area on Tyrrel Road. A park & ride site nearby will be decided upon. The 917-acre Taconic Hereford Multiple Use Area is one of the largest state forests in Dutchess County. Most trails on this property allow multiple uses. It is very popular with mountain bikers, horseback riders, and dog walkers.

I will be scouting the area in the week prior to determine the best trails to travel and what Park & Ride area to meet at. We have found mushrooms there is the past. I’m hoping for a very good experience considering the two other times I’ve been here we were under drought conditions.

The terrain is relatively mild. Intermediate at worst for most of the area. Take precautions for ticks and mosquitoes.

  1. Got the call from Ira and went on the walk. My wife and I had a very nice day with the group of well informed members. Thank you for having us along and hope to meet some of you again.
