Everything is better with goats. (It's true.) Designed specifically for the people who love being active in the outdoors and also love animals! Come hike with us and our herd of rescued goats through the beauty of the forest tucked into a remote part of the Catskills, just 2 hours from Manhattan. Our goats feel safest with humans and so they magically follow and walk with us through the woods on seasoned trails as we become part of their herd. No leashes needed! We will meander through the forest over beautiful streams, enjoying the wildlife and scenery while we forage for some of the goat's favorite treats. We stop midway for a brief rest and water break before finishing our loop, hiking approximately 2.5 miles and taking about 1.5 - 2.5 hrs, depending on the pace we set. For those who are interested, your guide can tell you the rescue story of each goat, share their quirks and different personalities and answer any question you might have about goats in general (with a few terrible goat jokes/puns thrown in for good measure.) If you are looking for a unique outdoor experience that combines your love of animals, hiking and nature, this is for you! Please note: * (NOTE: This is NOT the Original Hike experience....this is a 2.5 mile hike on loosely marked trails in a remote part of a preserve, with varied terrain and large breed goats.) *This activity is rain or shine, with the exception of local weather advisories or heavy downpour. * Sturdy hiking boots are highly recommended as the terrain can vary. Those who are unsteady on their feet may want to try our Original Hugs and Hike instead. * There is a portapotty on-site as a convenience and for emergencies only. * While we LOVE dogs, we do not allow them on the hike with the goats. * This experience is best suited for guests ages 16 and over due to the length of the hike, variable terrain and size/behaviors of the goats. * While you might be able to get an Uber/Lyft/cab to our location, it is VERY difficult to find the same service for the return trip. Please plan accordingly!
This event is rain or shine! Refunds minus service fee if cancelled with more than 72 hours notice.
