Our friends at Arc’teryx New York (@arcteryxnewyork) are sponsoring this adventure! By keeping the cost down with their contribution, they are helping more adventurers enjoy the outdoors. Beginners welcome!

Join us on an adventure to a place with amazing views and intriguing history. On this adventure, we are visiting two mountains – High Tor and Little Tor. High Tor has cool, panoramic views of the Hudson River and the town of Haverstraw. It also boasts a storied history. High Tor was used as a signal point during the Revolutionary War to warn the Colonists of a British invasion. It was also used as an air raid watch during World War II.

After our hike, we’ll stop by for treats on our way to NYC.
