Needs a location
This is one of our most popular hikes so why not work in some exercise and still have time to relax or attend your Superbowl Event later in the day.
Note: There are some light to moderate hills here so please be aware off that before signing up. That means this is not a simple walk around a track.
The plan is to work in whatever we can and be off-trail between 12 and 12:30.
Suggested Donation - $1.00
Please remember to dress in layers, bring at least one bottle of water (two is better), snacks, and a change of footwear for your ride home.
Please plan to arrive on-time. If you require prep time or are directionally challenged please factor that into your schedule. After 9AM there is a $10.00 fee to enter the park and cell coverage within the park is limited. We will be on the move by 850.

From the George Washington Bridge, proceed north on the Henry Hudson Parkway, which becomes the Saw Mill River Parkway. Take Exit 4 and continue on the Cross County Parkway, which becomes the Hutchinson River Parkway. Just beyond Exit 26 (the exit for I-287) bear left and continue on I-684 towards Brewster. Take Exit 6 (Cross River), which briefly joins the Saw Mill River Parkway, then exits to N.Y. Route 35. Turn right and follow Route 35 east for 3.7 miles to N.Y. Route 121. Turn right onto Route 121, cross a bridge over the Cross River, then immediately turn left and enter Ward Pound Ridge Reservation. Continue for 0.7 mile to the tollbooth (an $10 parking fee is charged on weekends, daily in the summer). Make the first right beyond the tollbooth onto Michigan Road, and continue for 0.7 mile to a parking area just before a turnaround circle at the end of the road (if this parking area is full, additional parking is available uphill to the left).
Well behaved dogs are welcome but I may ask you to stay in the back of the pack.
Rain or Snow on the morning of the hike cancels.
Microspikes are not a requirement at this time but that is subject to change based on the weather conditions leading up to the hike.
