Spend Thanksgiving Day in great company! Staying local for Thanksgiving? Come with us!

Everyone knows Breakneck Ridge – it’s a New York classic! It’s that tough scramble with gorgeous views at the top! Today is a rare opportunity for us to do this amazing hike without the usual crowds. We’ll leave early and make our way up the mountain. After summitting, we’ll climb Sugarloaf Mountain and take a less steep decent down. And of course, we’ll have treats!

And if you have evening plans, we’ll get you back to the City by 4:00 pm! It’s the best of both worlds! Come, get your blood pumping, with enough time left at the end to still have evening plans! Gobble-gobble!
