  • Seven Wonders of Van Cortlandt Park with John Butler. 2-3 miles, easy but some hills.  More difficult with snow.  Come get a sneak peek at some of the Seven Wonders of Van Cortlandt Park.  See what a great park this is for hiking as we hike throughout the Southwest Corner, making stops at the wonders and other beautiful sights.  
  • Isham & Inwood Hill Parks.  Learn about the development of Inwood, its parks and the historic land gifts that helped preserve approximately 220 acres of the original terrain of Manhattan Island. Learn about the trails, the beautiful estate, lovely rock outcrop and scenic Hudson River views offered by this urban gem.
  • Van Cortlandt Park Northwest Woodlands with Victor Scelzo. 3 miles, moderate pace. Hiking shoes required for rough and possible wet sections. Experience winter woodlands, mostly in the northwest forest of the park.  Bring snack and beverage for during the walk.
