Take a Hike!


Who says you have to travel far from home to go on a great hike?
Here are forty of the best hikes near New York City, most of them
within an hour's drive-from one that takes you past the Big Apple's oldest tree to others with spectacular views of the Hudson River. The hikes cover New York State, New Jersey, and Connecticut, and more than half are accessible by train or bus. Whether you're in the mood for an easy nature walk, a day-long hike, or an overnighter, this guide offers plenty to choose from:
 
• Appalachian Trail
• Bear Mountain State Park
• Fire Island National Seashore
• Harriman State Park
• Hudson Highlands State Park
• Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge
 
Each hike features full-color photos; a brief route description; thorough directions to the trailhead (GPS coordinates included); a detailed, full-color trail map; and at-a-glance information on distance and difficulty level, hiking time, canine compatibility, and fees and permits. Inside you'll also find a Trail Finder that categorizes each hike (e.g., for attractions such as views, and if it's suitable for families with kids); Green Tips; and information about local lore, points of interest, and the area's wildlife.
