(best time to call: Evenings)

I have been leading hikes for the AMC since 2008, mainly in the Wyanokies and other areas of the New Jersey Highlands and also Sterling Forest and Storm King State Park in NY. I lead hikes in all seasons. Future hikes will include these and other destinations west of the Hudson. Distance and terrain vary according to hike location and season Most of my hikes do not require preregistration. However you may always call or email if you have questions.
