What we're about

The Appalachian Mountain Club (http://www.outdoors.org/) (“AMC”) is one of the oldest outdoors groups in the United States. We offer activities for all types and levels of outdoor enthusiasts, including hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, mountaineering, kayaking, bicycling and more!

AMC has 12 regional chapters in the Northeast region that stretch from Maine to Washington, D.C. The New York-North Jersey Chapter (http://www.amc-ny.org/)is the second largest with over 12,000 members. We have over 100,000 members nationally.

Young Members (“YM”) is an affinity group within AMC for members in their 20’s and 30’s. YM holds monthly outdoors events (e.g., day hikes, camping trips, kayaking trips) and a happy hour on every third Thursday of the month (“Thirsty Third Thursdays”). A few times a year, we hold inter-chapter events with YM groups from the 11 other chapters in our organization.

If you’re interested in the outdoors and are looking to make new friends, then please come to one of our events. Please note that we’re open to everyone, including “non-members”!

Forest Park, Queens Hike (Easy/Moderate)

Wallenberg Square

Take a mid-morning break and support Trish Bansi on her second Leader-in-Training Hike!

We'll explore NYC's third largest park in Queens. Leader's choice of trails. The plan is to walk the orange and some other unmarked trails.
*You must be able to walk at a moderate pace.

We will hike some of the wooded trails with hills. Trails may be slippery so wear shoes or boots that grip.

Distance is about 4 to 5 miles
Old AMC Hiking code: 2C4-5

Out of consideration for all people who share the trails with us, the following advisory will continue to apply.
All participants must:
1) be free of COVID-19 infection to their knowledge
2) carry face masks in your pocket if needed
3) carry hand sanitizer of at least 70% alcohol
4) be prepared to observe social distance
