PHM History Hike: Benedict Arnold’s Flight
July 1 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm$10.00
General Benedict Arnold is infamous for his thwarted plan to surrender American-controlled West Point to the British during the Revolutionary War. Join Putnam History Museum for a socially distant history hike of Arnold’s escape path through present day Garrison, NY. Along the way we’ll discuss why the General was driven to betray the Revolution and how prominent local landowner Beverly Robinson aided Arnold’s mission.
This history hike includes scenic views of the Hudson River and West Point and will last approximately one hour. The trail is one mile in length but includes uneven rocky terrain and several steep hills. Appropriate footwear and active/outdoor attire strongly suggested. Participants will be required to sign a release before the event.
Starting Location: Philipstown Recreation Department Parking Lot. 107 Glenclyffe Rd, Garrison, NY 10524.
Topic: US Revolution
Hike Difficulty: Moderate. Path includes several steep hills and sections of rocky, uneven terrain.
Cost: PHM Members, $8 | Non-Members, $10
