Half Day Hike-Central Park

Join me on a fast paced seven mile expedition in Central Park. You will see the Park as you’ve never seen it before. We’ll see the old cave in the Ramble, the head of T-Rex, remnants of the wall of the old Reservoir which is now the Great Lawn and there will be plenty of other surprises along the way. We will end up seeing a large part of the Park including the waterfalls in the North Woods. We will move fast but we will stop a number of times to talk about what we see.

Meet BEFORE 10:A.M. at the Southwest Corner of 72nd Street and Fifth Ave. Be ready to go. We will finish somewhere in mid park around 2:00 P.M. No lunch stop.

Beware of the numerous subway interruptions on this day. See http://www.mta.info/service/ and click on Subways. WE LEAVE PROMPTLY.

Please consider joining the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) http://www.outdoors.org/chapters/newyork-northjersey-chapter.cfm The Club offers many hikes, walks and events and is also active in conservation efforts and trail maintenance. Only a few of the many hikes and walks that are offered by AMC leaders are posted on Meetup. For example, I’ll be doing some Half Day Hikes fairly soon in the woods and none of them will be posted on AMC Meetup. You will have to be an actual AMC club member to go.

Since AMC club members are going to be notified about this event shortly and will be attending, THERE IS NO NEED for AMC club members to RSVP for this and take up a spot. If you are an AMC club member, just show up. Let’s leave 30 spaces for AMC Meetup members. Needless to say, if you RSVP and decide not to go, please be considerate and cancel your RSVP so someone else can take your spot.

I am going to ask that people not post comments PRIOR to the event. Please feel free to comment all you want after the event.

If the weather is bad, I will post a notice on Sunday before 8:00 A.M. cancelling. If there is no posting, we go.

    This hike, with my boyfriend, was my 1st time in Central Park. Bruce was very informative with the park's history. I never realized how vas vast and woods-like the park is. Will visit more often.
