Join the Urban Park Rangers during our 40th Anniversary as we hike "over the hill" inside of our parks. This hiking series features some of the steepest hills in NYC Parks. Comfortable walking shoes or hiking boots are recommended on these moderate to vigorous hikes.

This hike features Vault Hill in Van Cortlandt Park, which is the burial ground of the Van Cortlandt family. The hike will continue uphill into the North Woods and beyond.
