Our Urban Park Ranger hiking guides will introduce you to the hidden gems of New York City and places often off limits to the general public. On our hikes, you may explore nature, discover our city’s rich history and diverse culture, or just unplug form the world to clear your head.
Moderate hikes are longer, faster paced hikes on rugged terrain. For all hiking programs we recommend wearing comfortable shoes or boots, and packing water and a light snack.
