This trip should take about 90 minutes, so we will spend some time doing some light hiking and then headed into town. Itinerary with times will be emailed when you sign up.

Outerthere Runs Ragnar! Plus Hiking + Festival!

Outerthere Runs Ragnar! Plus Hiking + Festival!

 

We're running in Jersey so we're carpooling.

Ragnar is a relay race. A team of 4, 6, or 8 split 200 f_ckin' miles(!!!) into 3 loops of varying elevations and distance and repeat over and over, day and night, for 2 days. I know, sum bullsh_t. And they actually charge you $200 for this like, are you serious?! Anyway, it goes overnight, with runners alternating between running and sleeping. Don't laugh. This is an actual thing people do. It's endorsed by NYRR and there's a festival village for supporters. So nope, I ain't running that bullsh_t. Outerthere superstar Anna is with her crew, because she's awesome (or completely nuts. Jury's still out). I'll be there throughout the 2 days to support and pretend like I'm a runner with my fancy running shoes and Outerthere gear. But I'll be in a great park and may do some hiking with side missions. Check the clip of the last 50k Anna did and sign up to be part of her team ('cause you insane like she is), be a cheerleader and/or do some light hiking and side missions with me.

Outerthere Gets Squeezed!

Outerthere Gets Squeezed!

 

We're going to Mohonk Preserve in NY. Meeting at trailhead.

This is a legendary hike because of a particular feature called the Lemon Squeeze. It's basically a rock climbing wall where they built a ladder you have to climb and when you get to the top, you have to squeeze through. It's no joke. And neither is the trail to get there, dope and scrambly. Although it's a short, 4-mile loop, these and other features make it a solid 9 out of 10 for difficulty. So, this is a scouting trip, since we've never done it and it's for advanced hikers only. (Check the difficulty ratings). Check the clip below to see how we hike and sign up below. No charge to go. Let me know if you're going and I'll try to arrange a carpool for you.

Annual Cold Weather Snowshoe Hike

 

We're hiking Breakneck Ridge!

I don't know about you, but when it's snowing, I want to go hiking anyway. Snow or no, we're hiking Breackneck Ridge in the cold. Because we're gangster like that. Depending on the weather, this hike may be point to point or a loop. This is an ADVANCED hike.

You can easily spend a fortune to get all the right gear for this kind of trip. (Curious what kind of gear you need? Check out the Outerthere gear list for this time of year.) However, that's not recommended for a one-off trip like this. If you don't have any friends you can borrow from (or a trust fund that won't even feel this kind of spending), then check out Outerthere homies Traverse Outfitters, the largest outdoor rental guys in NYC. Ask for Avi and tell 'em Al sentcha. He'll hook you up with whatever you're missing and you can save that money for beers, your dealer, or diapers, whatever your priorities, yo.

Win-a-Sebago Lake Beginner Hike

Win-a-Sebago Lake Beginner Hike

TRIP DESCRIPTION

Before I started guiding trips, I'd taken several friends on this trail I put together (including my 65-year old mom!) and everyone's loved it because it parallels a stream - which is fed by a dammed lake - and the altitude gains are gradual, so you can leave your climbing gear at home.  Although we'll be walking approximately 7 miles between two villages, we should be arriving at Tuxedo in time to catch the 6:30 train back home.

Sebago Lake, like most of the other bodies of water in this area, is not swimmable (according to signs you won't even notice), but it is fishable (in case you want to catch your lunch).  Once we cross this point, we'll relax and then we've got the entire trail practically to ourselves until Tuxedo; and you'll appreciate it, because after a lake-side snooze, you'll have to fight the -itis hard to get to the end and you don't want anyone else seeing that.

We'll be meeting at the entrance to NJ Transit in Penn Station in NY at 8:45a for a 9:14a departure.  Purchase your round-trip ticket to Tuxedo via Secaucus Junction. Tickets are apprx $25 from the tellers.  We should be back at Penn Station by approx 8p. Here's my handy-dandy checklist for what gear to bring.

Scouting Hike Exploring Hudson's Palisades Trail

Scouting Hike Exploring Hudson's Palisades Trail

TRIP DESCRIPTION

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.

Not sure what to wear for this adventure? Check out my recommendations.

Pawling Wanna Cracker Beginner Hike - 1st Hike of the Season!

Pawling Wanna Cracker Beginner Hike - 1st Hike of the Season!

TRIP DESCRIPTION

The Pawling Nature Reserve is 1,000 acres of pristine forest in Dutchess County, NY, smack in the middle of what I recently learned was the Great Swamp, one of the largest, freshwater wetlands in NY state, spread out over 6,000 acres in the Harlem Valley, and filtering the water supply for almost every city between Pawling and NYC.  An easy 3-mile loop, I’m seriously hoping there’s snow on the ground for this one, because it’ll make it twice as awesome!  It’s a 2-hour train ride on the Metro North Harlem line, so we’ll be meeting at the clock at Grand Central Station at 9:15am to catch the 9:47am train to Appalachian Trail Station.  From there, we can have a light snack, hike 2 hours, leisurely lunch (weather dependent), then hike out.  We’d catch the 4:45p back home, and arrive back at Grand Central around 6:45p. It'll be 60s and sunny, so you can leave the heavy coats and winter boots at home. That said, always bring some kind of layers and enough food and water to snack, but not get full.
