Hiking is the ultimate way to enjoy the outdoors and reduce stress. Regardless of the intensity level, it is a great way to burn calories and stay fit. Our Urban Park Ranger hiking guides will introduce you to the hidden gems of New York City. Hiking programs feature intensity levels ranging from light (leisurely stroll on mostly paved paths), to moderate (longer, faster paced hikes on rugged terrain), to vigorous (long distance, with hills and rugged terrain). This challenging eight mile hike winds its way through most of the park's many diverse forests and ecosystems. For all hiking programs we recommend wearing comfortable shoes or boots, and packing water and a light snack.

Pre-registration encouraged. To register, visit www.nyc.gov/parks/rangers/register on Wednesday, October 29th. If registrations exceed program capacity, participants will be chosen through lottery to ensure fairness in the selection process.

Hiking is the ultimate way to enjoy the outdoors and reduce stress. Regardless of the intensity level, it is a great way to burn calories and stay fit. Our Urban Park Ranger hiking guides will introduce you to the hidden gems of New York City.

Fitness hikes feature less talking and more walking. Hiking programs feature intensity levels ranging from light (leisurely stroll on mostly paved paths), to moderate (longer, faster-paced hikes on rugged terrain), to vigorous (long distance, with hills and rugged terrain).

For all hiking programs we recommend wearing comfortable shoes or boots, and packing water and a light snack.
