Description

Join us for our annual Thanksgiving Dinner at the Bear Mountain Inn. We will be enjoying a wonderful Thanksgiving Day dinner buffet style at the Bear Mountain Inn. Dinner will start at 3 pm so that will give you plenty of time to work up your appetite with a nice hike beforehand. The buffet will feature the traditional holiday favorites and have plenty of vegetarian options for the herbivores among us. You don’t have to do a hike to join us for dinner. Stop by and enjoy a nice meal and see some old friends.

One of the hikes will be led by Wayne Foote (this year’s host), 3-1/2 miles, elevation gain of about 950 ft., following the Major Welch Trail to Perkins Tower at the top of Bear Mountain, returning to the Inn by the new, relocated Appalachian Trail. This hike will begin at 10:45 and end by 2:45 to give people time to clean up for dinner.

We hope to have some more leaders add to the festivities and leading a hike that morning. Just make sure everyone can be to the Bear Mountain Inn in time for dinner!

Getting there: Take the Palisades Interstate Parkway north, to the Bear Mountain Traffic Circle, then south a short distance to the Inn (sign on right). There is no fee for parking on Thanksgiving Day. Driving time from the New Jersey side of the George Washington Bridge is about an hour. Please plan to arrive at the Inn no later than 10:30, when we will all meet in the lounge on the ground floor.

Bus: Alternatively, if you want to arrive in time for any of the hikes, you should take the 8:45 Short Line bus from the Port Authority Bus Terminal, arriving 10:15 directly in front of the Bear Mountain Inn. There is also a bus leaving at 11:15, which arrives 12:45 at the Inn. The round-trip bus fare is $26.70 ($13.35 one-way -- half price for seniors (62+) with blue reduced rate New Jersey Transit coupons. (You can pick up a booklet of reduced fare coupons at any Jersey Transit window at the PABT by showing ID indicating date of birth.) Returning, there is a 5:19 bus from the Inn, arriving 7:00 p.m. at the Port Authority Bus Station.


HAVE A GREAT THANKSGIVING!
