Full datetime event:Thursday, August 17, 2023From 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Did you know that there's a hiking trail that starts at the George Washington Bridge that will run all the way to the Adirondacks? The 358 mile trail is one of many trails managed by local non-profit the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference (NYNJTC) and you can get to it by subway!
Tonight, we'll be joined by the team from the NYNJTC who will share more on the history and current status of the trail and the forests and woods it connects across the state. The NYNJTC Team will also be bringing their famed maps (our favorites for any local hiking) so you can stock up for your next hike.
If you want to actually try hiking the Long Path, we'll be heading out on August 19th - join us!
P.S. all participants will have an opportunity to win Blundstone boots tonight 😊
