LIVE IN OR AROUND the 5 boroughs? VISITING NYC AND WANT TO explore MORE THAN TIMES SQUARE? looking for fun team building activities?

Melissa "Click" Goodwin, licensed Outdoor Guide and founder of Girl Gotta Hike can help you or your group navigate your escape from the Big Apple to the countryside.

A New York native, Melissa has lived and hiked across the Empire State, but is especially in love with the landscape and the lore of the Catskill Mountains and the Hudson Valley. From simple strolls along the Wallkill River farmlands to demanding ascents and descents of The Devil's Path, this region's trails have it all and it's Melissa's mission to introduce busy city dwellers and visitors alike to it's unique beauty.

Whether you're looking for a few hours of solace away from the city or a few days off-grid, Melissa will cater a trek specifically to meet your outdoor goals and help you to find both enjoyment and challenge, regardless of your prior experience.
