Event Description

Join us as we take on one of the most challenging and beautiful hikes along the Hudson River! “This loop hike descends the Palisades cliffs, follows a challenging, rocky path along the Hudson River, passes a scenic waterfall, and climbs to reach a panoramic viewpoint over the river.” You will certainly earn the majestic views taken in as well as the post-hike lunch the group traditionally hits up.

In honor of the 10 year anniversary of 9/11 the group will stop for a moment of silence during this hike.

Screen capture of Google Earth plot of GPS hike data.  Google Maps kept rejecting the KML file (don't understand why Google Earth accepted the file but Google Maps didn't).

Hey, all - sorry for the little distraction I provided today. I checked out fine except for needing a couple staples, so I'm ready for another hike! Thank you all, especially Cyrielle, Denis and Dave!
