For the nature lovers…
Here’s a list of upcoming nearby events organized by the Palisades Interstate Park. Some hiking, an informative slide show, and a field trip. For those that think a “hike” involves walking more than a few blocks, then these may not be your cup of tea.
“Cape Fly Away”
There will be a winter history hike with Eric Nelsen on Saturday, February 3, meeting at 11 AM at Park Headquarters in Alpine (PIP Exit 2). The hike will cover about 3 miles round-trip distance in about 2 hours over moderate trails with some slopes. This is a free program, open to all, with no advance registration required. The hike will be held “drizzle or shine”; heavy or steady rain, or icy trail conditions, will cancel. To confirm on the morning of the hike if conditions seem questionable: 201 768-1360 ext. 108.
