Alright guys, the weather looks about as good as it's going to get for a summer hike. Any one out there have summers off or work odd hours? This one's for you! This is one of my favorites, with great views of the Hudson and a walk along Nyack Beach. It's about 6 miles, with moderate difficultly. Bring a couple of liters of water and good pair of hiking boots. Here is a pretty thorough description of the hike and directions to where we're meeting: This is the fire house near the parking lot where we're meeting, at the end of Landing Road. Driving Directions Take the Palisades Interstate Parkway north to Exit 4, and turn left at the bottom of the ramp onto US 9W. Continue north on US 9W for about 10 miles (2.8 miles beyond the intersection with NY 59 in Nyack). At the bottom of a hill, turn right and enter Rockland Lake State Park. Continue ahead on the main park road, which curves to the right, and proceed for 1.4 miles to a three-way intersection. Here, the main road bears left, but you should continue ahead onto Landing Road (marked by a “No Outlet” sign). After passing a fire station to the right, park in the spaces provided on the right side of the road, just before a barricade across the road. Description It's not letting me post a description of the hike, but here's the link to it if you want to check out the details: https://www.nynjtc.org/hike/long-pathhook-mountain-bike-path-loop-summit-hook-mountain Oh, and like most of my hikes, we will be getting food somewhere afterwards. Hope to see you there!
Alright guys, this is one of my favorite hikes to do at night. It's 5 miles on the nose, and take me an hour and a half tops most of the time, but I'm sure it'll take us a little longer since we'll spend a little time eating down by the Ross Dock picnic area. I park across from the Kuba Restaurant, so that's why I used that address. There's meters but they don't check them after 6pm. So we'll start across the street from there by the steps., and start on the Long Path and go about .9 miles to the stairs that go down to the Ross Dock Picnic Area, where there's swings and even a small rock wall where we can chill for a bit and take in the views of the Hudson. The Econo Lodge address is 2143 Hudson Terrace in Fort Lee. They used to let hikers park there, but it's looks they're closed now unfortunately. There should be a ton of street parking though. If you're not interested in the sushi part, meet us there at 7:30pm. After that, we'll walk along the water for about a mile until we reach the Englewood Cliffs Boat Basin, then start on the steps back up, passing a waterfall on our left, where we'll take the Allison Park Trail(yellow) back to the cars, which is pretty much all flat. Like the Ringwood Hike, this is great for beginners. Bring a couple liters of water and a headlamp or flash light(although I do have one extra headlamp to spare). Hope to see you there!
