Word on the Street
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 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 from the world to clear your head. On Nature Exploration Hike we will discover the plants and animals that inhabit for families! Fitness Hikes features less talking and more walking for those who don't mind a vigorous two hour hike. Learn how to navigate using a map and compass on our Orienteering programs. Special geo-caching teach you how to use a GPS while searching for hidden prizes. Hiking and Orienteering programs feature intensity levels ranging from light (a leisurely stroll on mostly paved paths), moderate (longer, faster paced hikes on rugged terrain), to vigorous (long distance, with hills and rugged terrain). For all hiking programs we recommended wearing comfortable shoes or boots, and packing water and light snack.
