What we're about

"In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks." John Muir  
Meet other local hiking enthusiasts. Make a new friend or three. Burn a few calories. Enjoy nature in our fabulously beautiful Westchester County, the Hudson Valley and beyond!!

This is a hiking group with a wide range of hikes, with some that include rock scrambles. You hike at your own risk. Please wear hiking shoes/boots (this is an absolute must). Always bring at least two liters of water and snacks depending on length of hike.

Dogs are welcome to come with us when the event writeup says it's a dog friendly hike.

If you sign up for our hikes, please honor your commitment. Holding a spot you're not going to use is unfair to our leaders and hikers.

It is required that all members have their name and recent picture of themselves in their profile should an emergency arise. Safety first.

The dues to run the group are about $220/year. Any small contribution you would like to make to keep the group going is appreciated. Thanks.

Happy trails to all !

Join us for a fun, intermediate local Westchester hike. Group size limited to 35. Face masks are optional. This is NOT a hike for beginners, make sure your fitness level is up to the quick pace and steep climbs. We will hike most of the perimeter of Butler Sanctuary, 3-4 miles, 2 hours. Bring plenty of water, hydrate before hike. PLEASE arrive at the Butler parking lot by 10:45am. We leave on time at 11.

Make sure you DON'T go to Westmorland Sanctuary across the road.

***If you sign up for our hikes please honor your commitment. Being a no show or last minute cancel is unfair to our leaders and hikers.
Kindly be considerate and cancel your spot if you won't make the hike by 5 pm the night before, especially a hike that has a waitlist.

Participation is at your own risk. Hike leaders are not responsible for your safety. You may sustain an injury while hiking.

The dues to run the group are around $220.00/year. Any small contribution you would like to make to keep our group going is appreciated. Thanks.
