Event Description

Due to the potential rain this hike will be moved from 4.22.12 to 5.5.12.  Email Laura@NJYP.org by 5.1.12 if you cannot make the new date.

Are you ready for an early-Spring challenge? Then meet up with other NJYPers at Harriman State Park as we follow a path that will take us past old growth green forests, pristine vistas and beautiful overlooks of lush valleys and distant cities. Together we will explore this vast, beautiful place while getting in a workout. After the hike we may go out for a late lunch and  drinks so bring cash and get ready to work up an appetite.

Hike Leader:
David will be leading this hike. David will not be waiting for late people. In fairness to those who arrive on time, the hike will start on time.

Hike Specs:
Classified as strenuous with a lot of uphill and downhill.
7 miles long and we will walk at a moderate pace.
4 hours from start to finish, depending on how people feel.
As with all hikes you must be in good, athletic shape. This is NOT suitable for beginners.

Sweeper:
If the group size is larger than 10, we are going to look for a volunteer to act as a sweeper. Sweepers will walk at the end of the hike line and will make sure the group stays together.

What to bring:
Hiking boots and 3 liters of water (required).
Also recommended is non cotton clothing.
Sunscreen and a light snack or a small lunch.

Inclement Weather:
Heavy precipitation will cancel this hike; drizzle will not. Please check your inbox for updates. Tickets will be refunded.

Directions:
Head north on I-287. Follow I-287 until the NY State border and follow the signs for I-87 North (also known as NY State Thruway). Take exit 15A and make a left at the end of the exit ramp onto RT 17 North. Follow that for 2.5 miles and make a right turn onto Seven Lakes Drive. Follow Seven Lakes Drive for 1.5 miles and you will see the visitor’s center to the right. There is little parking so you may have to park on the street with other vehicles (that’s not a problem, but just be aware and keep your tires behind the white line).

Obey the speed limit! 25mph as you approach the park and they mean it.
