The Bear Stuck Its Appalachian In Anthony's Nose Crazy Hike

True story. The first time I attempted this hike with a group, it was in the fall and it took about 4 hours. The 2nd time, it was in the winter, and it took 10. There's no telling what this hike will give us, but who cares, right?! We're going rain, snow, sleet, hail, which might actually happen given the weather these days. As you can see from the pic, this hike is the only hike that takes us across the Hudson, which allows for sweeping views of the lower Catskills region. So, you want to bring your camera and binocs if you've got 'em!

Starting from Bear Mountain, we’re hiking across Bear Mountain Bridge to Anthony’s Nose, then north 10 miles along a stretch of the Appalachian Trail, through Hudson Highlands State Park to depart from Garrison, NY.  That’s right hikers, this is possibly the only hike that takes us through trails on both sides of the Hudson in the same day!  We’ll get dramatic terrain changes, the whole while enjoying grand views of the Hudson River, West Point, and other unexpected awesomeness.  If you’re planning to hike the AT, this trip will give you a great snapshot of what to expect and how to train. 

We’ll be meeting in front of the Schnippers at the ground floor of the New York Times Building at 8am and walking over as a group to the Port Authority on 41st and 8th ave to take the 8:45a Shortline Bus headed to Bear Mountain-West Point (buy one way, ~$18).  We should be done by 6p (including breaks).  We’ll be returning on the Metro North Hudson Line to Grand Central (~$18) at around 7 or 8p (trains run hourly). 

Wondering if you're ready for any crazy this trip has in store? Answer these quick questions. Not sure what to wear for this adventure? Check out my recommendations.  And read this waiver.

Outerthere Mountain Bikes!

I took a small scouting party to this park and we had such an ridiculously good time, we're going back to Cunningham Park in Queens! It's an awesome terrain park with plenty more to explore, with a bike rental nearby who already loves Outerthere fam. The terrain features are awesome and you will have more fun than you would expect in Queens. You will get dirty. You may get some bloody scrapes. And you will definitely be more exhausted than you've ever been from peddling. But it'll be awesome!

We'll be meeting at Penn Station at 9am to catch the 9:18am train to Douglaston on the Port Washington line. From there, we'll be walking over to the bike rental shop, where the price is $10/hour. We'll then peddle ~4 miles (30 minutes) to the park and explore those trails!  We will decide as a group when we're done.

Not sure if you can handle physically this adventure? Here's a quick test.

Dunderberg Will Kick Your Bear Hot Hike

Bear Mountain's lesser known cousin, Dunderberg Mountain, presents an awesome 7-mile loop just south of the famous resort mountain (once destined to be a NYS prison!)  Bring lots of water and bug spray. This hike is serious on hot days. But with epic views preceded by epic scrambling, you don't want to miss this trip! 

We'll be meeting in front of the Schnippers at the ground floor of the New York Times Building on 41st street and 8th ave at 8am and walking over as a group to the Port Authority on 41st and 8th ave to take the 8:45a Shortline Bus headed to Bear Mountain-West Point (buy round trip, $36).  We will be returning on the 5:19p bus back.

Jul 25, 2015 - Outerthere Whitewater Rafting the Black River, Yo!


#whitewater #rafting

OUTERTHERE WHITEWATER RAFTING THE BLACK RIVER, YO!

This is our first whitewater rafting trip together so you don't want to miss it! 

For real, if you're on this site, I don't think I need to 'splain to you why whitewater rafting is so awesome. Just know that the Black River is one of the awesomest rivers to raft, with crazy flow and tides. I've heard it described as "action-packed". So yeah. Word.

We'll be meeting in front of the Brooklyn Bagel's at 35-09 Ditmars Blvd Long Island City, NY 11105 at 2am - YES, 2AM! - and roatripping up the 330+ miles north to Lake Ontario (that's 5 hours homies, because for our first trip, we're going all in!)  We should be arriving around 8:30am (because I observe the posted speed limit and we're taking plenty of breaks), just in time to fill out waivers and jump in a boat. We'll likely be done by 4p after which, we'll be roadtripping back down. (You can sleep the entire way on our cushy minivan).  ETA back home 11p.  It'll be a full 24 hour day, but worth it! Looking for 5 or 6 Outerthere fam to help split the cost of the car rental, gas, and toll (apprx ~$75 per person).  Rafting is ~$75 per person.

You don't need to know how to swim for this trip, but if you're wondering if you're ready for what's in store, answer these quick questions. Not sure what to wear for this adventure? Check out my recommendations.  And read this waiver.

Aug 1, 2015 - Outerthere Surfs The Rock!


#surftherock

OUTERTHERE SURFS THE ROCK!

Unlike our other trips, surfing is the least predictable type of adventure we can plan. Sometimes, the weather is overcast. Other times, the tide just doesn't want to cooperate and there are no swells. And other times, the water's just sketchy. Oh, and despite really awesome progress, Rockaway Beach boardwalk is still under construction from Hurricane Sandy. But, it's our local beach and we're going for the day. Bring your towels, flip flops, and plenty of sun screen, because if the surf's up, we're surfing (and here's a handy beach cam and surf report by Surfline that we'll be checking that weekend) That said, this time of the year, east coast swells can reach reach 4 or 5 feet and the water is just starting to get warm enough that you don't need a wet suit. Board rental is approximately $50 for the day from whichever surf shop is renting on the beach.

We’ll be meeting in front of the Schnippers at the ground floor of the New York Times Building at 8am and walking over as a group to the Port Authority on 41st and 8th ave to take the A train all the way down to Rockaway Beach. Surf shops on 92nd and 116th open at 10am.

It's a beach. You'll be on the sand and in the water. You know what to pack. I'm bringing a cooler with "supplies". I suggest you do the same. To learn where we're meeting and how we're getting there, reserve your spot below.

#whitewater #kayaking

Outerthere Paddles deerfield

We went in April when the water was friggin' cold and it was epic. We're going back this August and yeah, the water will be juuuust right.

Outerthere is headed to Deerfield, MA for a 2-day trip to do some whitewater kayaking with Zoar Outdoor, a local outfitter.  I'm taking the Intermediate clinic. That makes this trip rating, Training. If you're down for this or another clinic, sign up via their site.

I'm heading up in my Wrangler and there's room for 2. Fill out the form below if you're down. Keep in mind, we're leaving 5am from a TBD location for a 3-hour roadtrip. First come, first serve. You'll need your camping gear. Some food will be provided by Zoar, but basically, we will be feeding ourselves. If you're not absolutely sure you're going, please don't fill out the below. Not sure if you can handle physically this adventure? Here's a quick test.

We're the Schunemunks Mountain Loop

Ok, I think I finally got the hang of trying to explain the difficulty of Outerthere hikes. Like all our trips, this hike is for "adventurous beginners" because our pace determines everything. It's one of the only hikes where we can adjust the difficulty as we go from beginner all the way to advanced, and if you've ever gone on a hike with me, you know I like to make "adjustments" all the time. And although it's not really for site seeing, there's plenty of spectacular views.

That said, beginner, intermediate, or advanced, there’s really only one word to describe this trip - picturesque. The walk to the trailhead is about a mile, but takes us past the train tracks we arrived on and through a smattering of homes so scenic, you wonder if anyone even lives in them.  At the trailhead, we ascend a manageable 1,300 feet up the namesake mountain, after which, it’s all downhill and we can basically enjoy a loop around the northern face of the mountain.

We'll be meeting at the entrance to NJ Transit in Penn Station in NY Penn Station at 8:45a to buy our roundtrip tickets to Salisbury Mills Cornwall Station ($16 each way). We should be back at Penn Station no later than 8p. Here's my handy-dandy checklist for what gear to bring. Hashtag for this trip is #schunemunks
