Announcing a new Meetup for New York Hiking and Outdoor Adventurers!

What: Hike this Sunday with lake stops. Either Bear Mountain or Harriman

When: Sunday, July 18,[masked]:15 AM

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

The Plan:

If there are enough drivers coming from NYC, we'll go to Bear Mountain, if not we'll make it Tuxedo for Harriman.

I'll call it late tomorrow morning.

Distance: around 7 miles.

Elevation: Ups and downs all day. Depending on which hike, we will accumulate as much as 1500 feet or a bit more over the day.

Pace: Moderate.

Dogs: Dog friendly hike. Bringing a dog? Please read the about page on dogs and let me know. (Unless your dog has hiked with me before.)

Bring: The usual: day pack, lunch, snacks, plenty of water, did I say plenty of water?, sunscreen, first aid kit, etc.

Swimming: It's not legal, but I'm just organizing this hike, not enforcing the rules. It's up to you whether to be a good camper or screw it and have fun (and risk a fine.)

Tranporation (if we go with Tuxedo): Drivers, meet in the big parking lot for the Tuxedo train station off route 17, just north of the station proper. Train riders: Take the NJ Transit from Penn Station arriving Secaucus 9:20. Change to Port Jervis line leaving Secaucus at 9:31. Arrive Tuxedo at 10:17.

Car Pooling from NYC (again for Tuxedo). If you are driving from NYC or nearby and can offer a ride mention it in your RSVP or in the comments. Those looking for a ride can do the same. It's up to you to make these arrangements.

You must read: http://www.meetup.com/adventurers-134/pages/FAQ%27s/ And be sure to click on the link, what happens if I can't keep up:

Keep in mind that these are not professionally-guided hikes, we do not charge and, ultimately, the standard of care is "You are responsible for yourself!" Nevertheless, we ask all participants (including the organizers) to sign a liability waiver and emergency contact form. (Sample can be found in the About pages.)
