Beacon and Fahnestock Obnoxious Crossover Hike!
Join us for this point to point hike that will connect Fahnestock State Park on the Appalachian Trail with the Mt. Beacon/Breakneck Ridge area! We'll meet in Beacon NY at the trail head and then shuttle with as few cars as possible to the start point to hike back. In the last portion, we will join with The Obnoxious Hiker group to continue to the end point. They are only doing an 8 mile loop at Mt. Beacon, so we will meet them on the way. Our route takes us from a short bit of the Appalachian Trail to a a series of trails heading to the west. We'll connect the two parks with some small back roads, and fortunately we will only be on pavement 2.2 miles. The groups will convene for food and drink after in the area.

What we're about

Since 1997, we have gathered weekly to explore the wonders of NJ, PA, NY, MD, and DE. The purpose of this group is to promote trail systems in the NY/Philadelphia metropolitan area, as well as other areas of natural and historic significance, through long day hikes. Most hikes are approximately 15 to 20 miles. This group is for people for whom a short hikes and commonly posted places are not enough; people who want to quench the thirst for experience and diversity, and to learn more of the amazing area in which we live, and to do so with a diverse group of people
Here's a promo video about the group by Tom Petrucci
