Overview

The planned route consists of 9 miles of level terrain, much of it paved, and offers spectacular views of New York Bay, Ellis Island, and the Statue of Liberty. It will include renovated natural areas such as Caven Point Natural Area. We will also hike past the Park's interior section that is in the planning stage for restoration. This is a hike and we will carry lunch as is usual. Instructions for meeting at the start of the hike will be sent to those who register. In the event that you need to cancel, please do so with enough time for waitlisted people to take your place. Thanks for your consideration. To accommodate high demand this hike has been repeated from the previous week. See also the Chapter's conservation web page www.amc-ny.org/conservation for its section on the proposed Liberty State Park Protection Act. COVID-19 Overview statement: DO NOT participate if you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19 (such as fever or cough), have been diagnosed with COVID-19, or are quarantined for potential exposure to COVID-19. Those who are at higher risk of getting COVID-19 or who may expose family members who are at higher risk should not participate. This hike is limited to 10 people including the leader(s) and requires advance registration. If you register but cannot attend, please cancel your registration in advance so that your space can go to someone else. Unregistered persons will not be able to participate in the hike.
