1st Annual Schoharie Turnpike Kaaterskill Clove Road Rally
A love of maps and history led to this rally up the 1802 Schoharie Turnpike to the Old Stone Fort Museum in Schoharie, with a continuing route up the Schoharie Creek and a descent of the Kaaterskill Clove. Along quiet country roads we travel through rural hamlets and villages, and stop at museums in Gilboa and Prattsville, the Mountaintop Arboretum, and the village of Tannersville. The Old Stone Fort Museum has an unrestored 1903 Rambler automobile in its collection which ties this new rally to the Catskill Conquest Rallies commemorating the 1903 Automobile Endurance Run. We get to see one of the cars from the Devil Wagon era of early motoring, the first car in Schoharie. This is a noncompetitive tour open to all cars. The route is about 135 miles long. We start at the Dutchman’s Landing Park in Catskill on the Hudson River at 10:00 am on Sunday, June 12, 2022. The fee is $100 per car.
