Everyone is welcome to join - beginners and experts alike. Shoot us an email if you're interesting in coming out on this work trip!


We'll be doing a re-route of the existing trail up to the spectacular Manaticut Point vista, with views all the way to the New York City skyline. Learn about layout and design considerations as we discuss how to turn a long climbing turn into a tight rock-shelf switchback.


Bring: Sturdy shoes, water, lunch/snacks, and tough clothing appropriate for outdoor work (including gloves and safety glasses if you have them). Raingear and warm layers depending on forecast. Be prepared for some good walking and wholesome outdoor exercise!
