Public Hikes

Destination Hikes   -  Go farther, faster.

We’ll keep a moderate pace as we summit each mountain, climb to that epic view, or descend to our swimming spot.  No worries – we’ll still take breaks, and you’ll still hear about the natural and cultural history– but our focus will be on our destination.

For: Goal-oriented hikers

Max group size: 6-8 people, depending on hike location and difficulty

Price: Starts at $49 /person for 3-hour hikes

Hiking Tours   -  Curated outdoor experiences.

Visit beautiful places and munch on wild berries seasonally, while learning about the rich cultural and natural history of the region from a local expert.  These slower paced excursions are to be savored for what you will see, touch, (sometimes taste) and learn. 

For: First-timers and locals who’ve passed by a place for years, but never learned the natural and cultural history…or that those little black berries are edible…and delicious!

Max group size: Long Dock Park: 10-12.  Breakneck Ridge: 6-7.

Price: Varies. Starts at 79$ /person for 4-hour Breakneck Ridge Tours

Discover New York   -  Explore the best places with local experts.

 

Learn about spring ephemeral wildflowers, ridge-top ecology, geology, or invasive species through our Discover NY series of hikes.  We'll explore wetlands, glacial formations, and much more.  Guests will receive exclusive access to online ecology guides specific to their hike.

For:  Those who’ve ever wished they had a naturalist or scientist with them while hiking—this is your chance!

Max group size: 6-8 people

Price: Starts at $99 /person for 4-hour hikes

*Discounts available when signing up for multiples hikes in the series and for students. Guests may also repeat the same Discover NY hike for half price, pending space availability. Ask for details.
