Join this test of endurance as we tackle the 43 mile path of the Old Croton Aqueduct!

We meet at the Croton Harmon Metro North Station at 7:40 and either car pool or cab up to the New Croton Dam. As soon as everyone gets to the Dam, we begin our walk by crossing and starting down the Aqueduct trail. We'll pass through Ossining, Scarborough, Tarrytown, Irvington, Ardsley, Dobbs Ferry, Hastings, and Yonkers for the Westchester portion, before continuing through Yonkers, Van Cortland Park, Kings Bridge, Fordham, University Heights,and Morris Heights before crossing the High Bridge into Manhattan. We'll venture further south on Amsterdam Ave to 96th Street, entering Central Park, crossing through and exiting near the Plaza on 5th Ave for the final euphoric mile to the NY Public Library at 42nd Street.

This will be a quick paced hike, with bathroom stops as necessary, but eating "on the run". Please bring water and snacks. Text "OCA hike" with your name and questions to 914-494-2325 for more details.
