What we're about

Make life an adventure, and join us in our travels around the New York City area. Most of our outings are easily reached by public transportation. Some outings are easy, and others difficult. Be prepared to visit interesting places, and meet new people.

This MeetUp group is sponsored by Outdoors Club (http://www.outdoorsclubny.org/), a non-profit 501 (c) (3) volunteer run organization open to all adults 18. Individual participants are expected to engage in activities suitable to their ability, experience and physical condition. Leaders may refuse to take anyone who lacks ability or is not properly dressed or equipped.
