Join EarthMatters on a hike! Experience spring outside the city!
Plan: We'll be taking the 9:45 am Metro North train from Grand Central to Garrison Station. (A round-trip ticket is $29 BUT if we have over 10 people committed 2 weeks before the hike, we can get a group discount!) The train ride is a little more than an hour and we'll get there around 11 am. There's about a half mile walk to the trail marker. The hike itself is around 4 miles and super easy (all skill levels are welcome!). It's mostly flat, but with some great views of the Hudson River and of old abandoned buildings. We'll be stopping to have lunch/snacks (so pack something), and the hike will likely take 2 - 3 hours. We'll either take the 2:20 or the 3:18 train back to Grand Central.
~Please~ RSVP as soon as you can because we'd love to get discounted group tickets! We'll be setting a time for us to take the subway together closer to the event date.
Don't hesitate to post in this event if you have any further questions/comments/concerns!
