We are teaming up with Adventure Untamed for this fun outing.  You will need to click on the link provided in this event description to register and save $5.   2020 has been quite a year. Spend this Thanksgiving outdoors, in good company, with some sweet treats, and be reminded that there are still a lot of good things in the world.

On this classic Hudson Highlands hike we’ll traverse Storm King Mountain’s steep trails while we hike one of the few places where a river bisects the Appalachian Mountain Chain almost to sea level.  This unique geological feature has created truly magnificent views both up and down the Hudson River. We’ll take our time on the trail but still get quite a workout, climbing a total of almost 2,000 feet throughout the day on our Thanksgiving adventure!
