Palisades Giant Stairs: Triple Giant Take Down, Round 1

From the docks along the Hudson, we'll head over to scramble the Giant Stairs. There are warning signs posted, so not for the weak of heart.  Once we conquer the scramble, we'll be rewarded with a fantastic waterfall and views across the river to NYC.  At least 2L of water required. Proper hiking attire (no sneakers).

Distance: Approx. 10 miles 

Meet Time: 9am

Meeting Place: Closter Dock Road Bus Stop, AMC Transportation Code 7C

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
