WARNING
This is an advanced, fast-paced, hilly, hard 38+ mile hike. Although we will try to stay relatively together, you must be prepared to hike or get back to your car if you fall behind. I highly recommend getting the NYNJTC Maps or downloading them in the Avenza App. There are barely any resupply points. You will lose cell signal during parts of the hike. And Uber/Lyft will not service parts of the route. You have been warned.

Schedule

5:00 AM - Pick up people and leave Jersey City.
6:00 AM - Start in Woodbury, NY [masked], [masked]).
8:00 PM - Finish in New City, NY [masked], [masked]). Take Uber.
9:00 PM - Uber arrives in Woodbury, NY [masked], [masked]).

5:41 AM - Sunrise
8:05 PM - Sunset

Start

I'm driving up from Jersey City and can pick people up from the Journal Square PATH Station. From New York City, there is a 33rd Street PATH Train that arrives at 4:42AM and a World Trade Center PATH Train that arrives at 4:46AM which you can use. Please let me know if you want me to pick you up. I'll send you the exact pickup location.

Otherwise, meet up at 5:50 AM at [masked], [masked]), the intersection of Route 32 and Evans Drive in Woodbury, NY where you can park. We'll start hiking at 6:00 AM.

Route

We are following the Teal Long Path for 38+ miles from Woodbury down to New City. These are sections 4 through 7 of the NYNJ Trail Conference Long Path Route. We will pass through Harriman State Park, Cheesecote Mountain Town Park, South Mountain County Park, and High Tor State Park.

Gear

There are limited opportunities to resupply for food and water, so bring all the food and water you need or be prepared to filter water when we stop for breaks. Since Sunrise is at 5:41 AM and Sunset is at 8:05 PM, we will probably not need headlamps but bring one just in case.

Pace

2.75 mph average pace including breaks using an estimate of 38.5 miles over 14 hours. We will wait at certain hilltops or trail intersections for people to catch up and also take a few other breaks. Breaks will be short. You don't have to stay with me if you want to hike on your own. You can choose to go ahead or take longer behind. Just let me know if you do.

End

We will finish at [masked], [masked]), the intersection of Route 9W and Long Clove Road in New City, NY where we will call for Uber to take us back to our cars and split the fare.

Additional Details

I will increase the number of spots closer to the event date. Just join the waitlist in the meantime. We will see if we can do more carpooling as well if enough people are interested. RSVP closes two days before the start.
