Saturday Lookout Walk at Ft Tryon

Pace: Conversational  |  Surface: A combination of a concrete multi-use path and dirt/gravel. One steep downhill grade  |  Distance: approximately 2 miles. 

Walk Description: Descend through stunning views of fall foliage, Hudson River, and New Jersey's Palisades. The grade is manageable even for somewhat tender knees. The view is one of the most beautiful in New York. Connect with nature, serenity, and your community.
