Event description

Description

Join Paragon Sports, Salomon, and Suunto as we partner with the Appalachian Mountain Club for our Monthly Hike Series from June thru October.

The AMC will be leading an instructional demo hike sponsored by Paragon Sports where experts from Suunto and Salomon will join us for a hands-on field demonstration of wearable GPS technology, and footwear on the trails! We're going to navigate a beginner friendly route within Harriman State Park using Suunto's GPS technology along with Salomon for you to try on and test out some of their industry-leading footwear.

This hike in the Palisades Interstate Park features gorgeous viewpoints looking out above the Hudson River and along the shore.

We will be starting our 7-mile hike on a section of the Long Path which is a famous thru-hiking trail that is 358 miles long, extending from NYC to Altamont, NY. The first 3 miles consist of mostly flat ground, dirt paths which wind through the trees about 50 feet inland from the edge of the Palisades cliffs. Eventually, we will reach the Women's Federation Monument which is a memorial acknowledging the women who played a key role in protecting the land of the Palisades region from quarrying in the early 19th century. We will then descend 520 feet down a steep set of steps along the Forest View Trail.

Once we arrive on flat ground, we will continue right on white blazes which is the Shore Trail. This trail runs along the shore of the Hudson River, where we will get some spectacular views of the water. Along this path we will find a great place to take a break and have some lunch. After these next 3 miles, we will be starting an ascent which includes some switchbacks. This area is rocky and we will be moving at a slow-moderate pace. No rush!

This hike is moderately strenuous so if you are unsure of your abilities please contact the leaders to help. Please wear appropriate footwear and clothing for hiking, along with packing a rain jacket and extra layers in the event of bad weather. You'll also need to pack at least 2 liters of water, plenty of snacks, and lunch. Heavy rain cancels this event.

Registration is a requirement for this activity as space is very limited! If you have any questions please contact the leader.
