Let's get Spring started right with a Palisades trail run! This run will start at the bus station, go over the bridge, up the Palisades Long Path and back.
I’ll be running at 9-10 minute/mile pace and likely turning around at the Alpine Lookout (15 miles round-trip from the bus station). Every pace and distance is welcome, but be prepared to be on your own if you can't find someone who matches yours.
If you would like to meet up with us on the New Jersey side, find us at the trail start just over the pedestrian bridge at 9:00am. Please indicate this in the comments when you RSVP.
Here’s a map of the trail (http://www.njpalisades.org/pdfs/map.pdf). The Long Path is marked “A” on the map and is marked with aqua blazes. Please familiarize yourself with the trail map before coming to the run.
Here's a list of landmarks (http://www.nynjtc.org/book/1-george-washington-bridge-nynj-state-line) along with their distance from the start on the NJ side.
I’ve also made a Google Map (http://goo.gl/maps/6nhCZ) that shows the trail along with several points of interest, including restrooms and places to get water. This map is approximate - do not rely on it for navigation!
