Overview

5 miles. We meet at 9:15 a.m. and begin the hike at 9:30 a.m. We'll explore NYC's third largest park. Lake, forest, marathon training hills, family cemetery, oldest public golf course in the USA, other historic sites - this park has it all. Take the #1 train to its end at 242nd Street. We will hike around 5 miles on hilly trails, some paved, others not. At times you won't believe you are in NYC. Wear good shoes, bring a walking stick if possible, water and a snack. Leave enough time to get there. If late, you'll miss the hike. Restrooms available. Wet weather will cancel. Finished at about 12:30 p.m. Find us on AMC Meetup. Registration will be in person on the day of the hike. Parking: Free Parking by the stables located in the park at Broadway by 256th Street. Then either walk or ride back to the meeting spot. Out of consideration for all people who share the trails with us, the following advisory will continue to apply. All participants must 1) be free of COVID-19 infection to their knowledge 2) carry face masks 3) carry hand sanitizer of at least 60% alcohol and 4) be prepared to observe social distancing.
