Event Description: In it’s first year, I’ve gone hiking with many adventurous NYC women in and around NYC on monthly Girl Gotta Hike Public Transit Hikes. I’ve had an absolute blast meeting you all! Who knew there were so many incredible women with wanderlust for the outdoors living here in the big city?! Did you come on a GGH hike in the last 12 months? Do you want to? Grab a blanket, some watermelon or your favorite picnic snacks and come on out on June 9th to Prospect Park to celebrate, talk some trail or reconnect with the other awesome ladies you met on your hike(s)!
If you don’t feel like carrying food with you, just stop in at Smorgasburg to purchase some tasty treats. We’ll be gathering near the lake on the Peninsula in Prospect Park at noon — across from the Well House Cistern on Well House Drive. Feel like getting a little workout in before you nosh? Meet me at Grand Army Plaza at 9:30 AM for a short pre-picnic hike in the park!

Come celebrate GGH’s 1st Anniversary with a Picnic in the Park! Sign up below to let me know if you’ll be coming, and/or if you want to go hiking ahead of time!
