Vromans Nose Historic Trail Award
More than 300 trails have been approved for Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Venturers, and family campers.Contact the Council for Specifics on the Vromans Nose award.
Vroman's Nose is a short, steep climb to a fresh perspective. Perched six hundred feet above the rich farmland of Schoharie Creek Valley, the cliff-tops of the Nose are the place to go when you want to get away from it all. Linger with the soaring turkey vultures, camp, picnic, or just relax above the peaceful valley before descending through pine forest, ending on a grassy slope above the parking lot.
Note from National Council: Hikers should organize themselves so that no more than 12 nor less than 3 hike in one group with proper leadership. Groups with more than 12 members should organize into two or more smaller groups that operate independently along the trail, again with proper leadership in each group. This helps to maintain the backcountry atmosphere for everyone using the trail, offers a better opportunity for observing wildlife, and makes it easier to keep the group together. Large groups tend to become strung out along the trail.
