FAIR WARNING: I have not done this hike yet, so we will learn together.

INFO FROM THE WEB
Situated on 235 sprawling acres in central Westchester County, Hardscrabble Wilderness Area is an easily accessible day away in the outdoors. Developed and managed by the town of Mount Pleasant, Hardscrabble offers rolling hills, babbling brooks, a small pond, and a moderately challenging hike. The park is a popular hiking destination for local dog owners, as well as the few in-the-know folks that have caught on to this little gem. Situated near the villages of Pleasantville and Chappaqua.

      Unfortunately, I am NOT available for lunch today. But I'd be more than happy to help you find a place to go after the hike if the group is so inclined.

    Hi Catherine, how long is this hike? just so I can organize myself.
    Thanks!

    • Catherine L.

      I posted it as a two hour hike. That should be more than enough time. See you tomorrow!

    • Catherine L.

      Please read the hike description. It is covered there. See you Saturday!

    I can't see why there's a waitlist - the place should be big enough for everyone!

      This is a small residential neighborhood with limited parking.
      Also, it is the group leader's prerogative on how large a group they want to be responsible for. The more people we have, for example, the slower we hike and the more noise we create. Some people like to have a quieter hike with the opportunity to photograph birds or wild life, for example. Each hike is individual and size changes depending on the hike. That being said, I watch the wait list carefully and try to ensure that everyone gets in.

      Hope this clarifies.

    I updated the address which accurately represents where the trail head and parking area is. Also, we have a wait list, so please update your RSVP if your plans change. Thanks.

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.
