GIRL GOTTA HIKE FURTHER AFIELD ADVENTURES
THE GIRL GOTTA HIKE FURTHER AFIELD ADVENTURES TAKE NYC HIKERS TO DESTINATIONS 2+ HOURS OUTSIDE OF THE CITY AND WHICH ARE MORE EASILY ACCESSIBLE BY PRIVATE VEHICLE THAN PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION.
Mountain streams wind their way across and over the rocky outcroppings of the Shawangunk Ridge. It’s a magical place filled with skytop lakes, gorgeous waterfalls and vast reaching views that are beyond compare. On this 7.5 mile hike, we’ll spend the day exploring some quieter sections of the Ridge, enjoying the cool shade of the woods, walking alongside streams, seeing the sunny views atop rock ledges and even get a chance to cool off in not one, but two favorite swim spots! Time permitting, we’ll grab dinner at a local favorite restaurant before heading home to the big city.
