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 Hudson Highlands Region features streams and gorgeous viewpoints looking out onto the Hudson River, Bear Mountain, the Hudson Highlands ridge line and the Bear Mountain Bridge. The total elevation gain for this hike is 1,732ft for just under 7 miles, out and back. We'll start the hike on a section of Camp Smith Trail at the Bear Mountain Bridge Toll House. For the first 0.4 miles there'll moderate terrain with gradual incline. After that, the trail will begin to take a steep incline up a rocky trail for the next half a mile, where we will arrive at about 665 feet above sea level. We'll then go up and down rocky terrain with a gradual incline, where we will reach 713 feet before we start to descend. This decline is quite steep, bringing us back to 321ft, but it is perfect for beginners. Our pace will keep us comfortable for the duration of the hike and we will take breaks for as needed. At 2.4 miles we will begin to gradually ascend to 565ft. Where we will walk along the equal grounded trail with small rolling hills before begining the last ascent up to Anthony's Nose. This last half-mile will be strenuous, but it will be well worth the amazing views! We will take our time going up this stretch and once we arrive at the summit, we will enjoy the many features of being atop Anthony's Nose at 899 feet!

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.
