Climbing Hikes with the LT Wandering Jews

LT Wandering Jews is committed to helping LT members get outside to experience the beauty and sanctity of nature. This year we're offering three different ways to do just that. Please sign up for the group that most closely matches your interests and abilities, and those with at least 10 committed hikers will run as advertised.

What to Expect: Our climbs are vigorous and you should be in good shape and have a good bit of stamina. As we climb you are watching your footing and listening to the sound of your breath. When you stop, you are impressed with the elevation you have gained and the vista unfolding before you. When it snows we put on micro spikes and use hiking poles to conquer the heights. Winter is also when we come across coyote, fox and bobcat tracks. Knapsacks, two liters of water, wicking clothing and the lower the temperatures, the more layers of clothing. We will provide further advice prior to each outing.

All Climbing Hikes will start on the Willow Street side of Larchmont Temple. We will meet at 7:30 AM and you should pack a lunch, snacks and water for the day. Due to the driving distances, we should plan on returning between 3:30 and 4:30 PM.

11/4/18 First Half of the Suffern to Bear Mountain Trail
