Hiking Route Description:
This is a scenic and relaxing route along the pretty Hudson river, overlooking the spans of the river and the shore of New Jersey. It is a nice way to get away from most of the hustle and bustle of NYC and have some nice relaxing exercise.
Hike Description:We will meet on Saturday morning and walk up the west side of Manhattan all the way to the historic Inwood Park and the Cloisters museum.
The hike will be about 7-8 miles, but it won't feel too long because it will be so much fun and so relaxing. Everyone is welcome.
Recommended Clothing:Wear clothing that will be appropriate for the weather. It might still be cold.
Recommended Food:Bring a snack and water.
Cancellation Condition:Rain, snow, or below 30 degree weather cancels the hike.
Hike Start Location/Trailhead Details
Park:Riverside Park, West Side, Manhattan
Trailhead Name:72nd and Riverside Drive
Description:There is parking available on the street, but it is extremely difficult to find a parking spot. The bathrooms are available at nearby businesses like Starbucks, but I don't think there are any in the park itself. The good meeting point is at the north-west point of the intersection of 72nd and Riverside, right at the bottom-right corner of the park.
Appx # of Parking Spots:5
