About

You asked so we’ll deliver – join us and go for a hike on this small group hiking trip out of NYC!

Meet your leader at the Adventure Cafe in NYC before being whisked out for relaxing and rejuvenating hike! The exact travel time will depend on the day, but in general we’ll arrive to start our hike after a 1.5 – 2hr drive. After the hike, we’ll be heading to one of our local brewery partners for a hearty picnic lunch and some delicious local craft beer. Breweries we could visit include Pine Island and Glenmere Brewing company.

All in all, this is the perfect experience for someone who’s looking for a relaxing but scenic escape from NYC in the spring, summer or fall. On this small group trip, you’ll get a chance to bond with and make friends with your fellow hikers. This is a small, intimate trip with a maximum group size of 16. This makes it the perfect opportunity to bond with some old friends from past trips or meet some fellow adventures for the first time.

 

Which hike you do will do depends on the day:

Saturday Hike

Saturday Hike Difficulty Level: Easy

On Saturdays we do an gentle, 2.5 hour hike along our to our favorite section of the Appalachian Trail in New Jersey!

After a 1.5 hour drive, we’ll arrive at our AT Trailhead. No, we don’t double back – our van will pick us up at the other side of the hike. We’ll be doing a 3 mile stretch of the Appalachian Trail that winds through the marsh on the Pochuck Board walk and includes about 400ft of gentle elevation gain. One of the coolest features of the hike is a 110ft wooden extension bridge that we’ll be crossing. We’ll plan on hiking for 2.5 hours. If the group is moving very quickly, we have options to keep moving and extend the hike as well.

Sunday Hike

Sunday Hike Difficulty Level: Medium

On Sundays we’ll be doing a more mid-level, 3-3.5 hour hike with a bit more elevation gain. The hike we do on Sundays changes every week. We might be in Harriman State Park or (if we don’t think it will be crowded), back at the AT Trailhead on the Pochuck Board Walk or we could check out Palisades. Please feel free to reach our with questions.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out! We look forward to adventuring with you.
