Bring a Scrabble Game and cushion. All kinds of players are welcome. Some use open book and cheat sheets.
We would have more people come if they knew more people were coming. So signing up ahead of time rather than just showing up helps that. Of course if you can come if you don’t sign up. If no one signs up by Tuesday Evening I will cancel. Most people expect to play two games.

How to find us
Meet in the main parking lot.
"At Pocantico Hills...where the fine views invite the soul...I have spent many delightful hours, studying the beautiful views, the trees and fine landscape effects of that very interesting section of the Hudson River..." Mr. John D. Rockefeller, Sr. Random Reminiscences
Fast paced hike. Will do 2 hours and 6 to 7 miles. We do not stop. There are early outs.
Terrain: Easy to moderate, mainly rolling hills.
This is not a beginner hike. We tend to walk at a brisk pace and we don't stop. We keep the same pace on the hills as we do on the flat parts of the trails. Please assess your ability to keep this pace before signing up.
Cancellation notices: If cancellation is necessary, it will be posted on the afternoon of the hike.
Pets: Friendly, well behaved dogs are welcome. The park requires dogs to be leashed at all times. It is possible that we will encounter one or more horses with riders or carriages. They have the right of way and you are expected to control your dog.
Liability Waiver: This is a fun and interesting group of people who enjoy hiking and socializing, it is not organized by a professional hiker.
Hiking or outdoor activities have inherent risks. Your participation in our hikes or other events could be dangerous and can result in serious injury, medical emergency, even death.
You agree to participate in this event completely at your own risk and to take full responsibility for your own safety and well being, including those of your guests.
