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.

On Nature Exploration Hikes we will discover the plants and animals that inhabit the urban forest. Ethnobotany looks at the cultural and historical uses of plants. For instance, did you know that the tea made from white pine needles contains a high dose of Vitamin C?

Hiking programs feature intensity levels ranging from light, (a 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.

All of our fitness programs are free, led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels. Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees.

For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their work outs, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their work outs, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

In what will hopefully be a preview of 2015, we've specially selected our 30 favorite food vendors to put on their best show at a Smorgasburg at SummerStage Central Park for one night only:Friday, September 19, from 5 to 9pm. Stroll into the world's loveliest city park before twilight on a late summer's eve, watch the sunset amongst the tall trees, sip a lovely beer or fine wine, sway to a classy DJ, and munch on the finest munchies in town. It's all so civilized in Central Park, right? Yes, and it's also free.

Some folks aren't aware that the Flea and Smorg have operated the food-and-beverage concession at SummerStage since 2010, where four food vendors set up for all 50+ shows every summer, and we run the bar. Asia Dog, Blue Marble Ice Cream, Lonestar Empire/Best Summer, and Pizza Moto have been holding it down uptown for a few years now, but we figured why not take a stab at throwing a proper Smorg party in such a stellar setting. If tons of you show up and it goes great, maybe we'll do it on the regular next year. Lots of ye olde stalwarts will be there—Mighty Quinn's, Ramen Burger, Cemitas, Lumpia Shack, Milk Truck—plus some new faves: Dan & John's Wings, Carnal (of the giant beef rib), East Coast Poké (Hawaiian ceviche!), El Super (seafood tostadas), and Fleisher's (the grass-fed upstate/Park Slope butcher shop with the mean burgers). Plus Butter & Scotch sweet treats, Brooklyn Soda Works' dee-lish drinks, and of course our trusty beer and wine bar.

Oh, we'll tell you who the DJ is when we know. :) Can you think of a reason not to come with all your pals? Us either.
