For Serious Hikers

You MUST be an experienced hiker in good physical shape, with proper gear, and able to hike at a brisk pace for 7-8 hours. Haven’t hiked with us before? No worries–come along as a guest and see what it’s like.

  1. Find a hike below
  2. Contact the hike leader, tell leader about your hiking experience, and find out when and where to meet
  3. Meet us at the designated place

NYC subways are not as frequent on early Sunday mornings—allow extra time to get to the meeting place.

Hikes are free for guests (thank you volunteer hike leaders!) After coming along on two hikes, send in the application form for membership. (Annual dues are $6 per year, plus $1 initial fee.

Sorry, but our hikes are not for everyone. We hike at a brisk pace. We hike all day long. We have a lot of experience. If this isn’t you, please consider a group with shorter hikes and beginner hikes:

*   *   *

Hiking involves certain inherent risks; hikers participating do so at their own risk.

When you participate in activities listed in the Schedule, you should be both physically and mentally prepared and equipped with the appropriate gear. The hike leader is not responsible for your safety, you are. There is no age limit; however, those who bring children must assume full responsibility for their safety and conduct at all times. The hike leader has the authority to turn away anyone who is not adequately prepared. Hikes don’t always finish at the expected time.
