Scouting Hike Exploring Hudson's Palisades Trail


The Palisades in NJ have a fascinating history. With evidence of native American habitation dating back to 5000 BCE, everyone from George Washington to John D. Rockefeller had a role in deciding their fate. Today, 2 trails line it, the Long Path on the top and the Shoreline Trail at the bottom. We're doing the Shore Trail, starting at the southern most tip and as far as we can go. The intention is to get as far as the Rockslide, which is approximately 10 miles north from our starting point and should take approximately 4 or 5 hours at a steady pace. This trip is a point-to-point, and the expectation is to catch a bus back to Port Authority from any of the bus stops at any of the towns that we will cross. Check out how I define scouting difficulty.

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 9:10am and walking over as a group to the Port Authority on 41st and 8th ave to buy our roundtrip tickets to Fort Lee. Bus leaves 9:30am. Don't be late. As always, we go rain or shine. Sign up below to get the detailed email.
