The Nature Place is pleased to announce our new year-round offering: Guided Family Day Hikes in Harriman State Park!

Join Nature Place trip leader, Roger Dubin, for fun, family-friendly excursions in our favorite stomping grounds: Harriman State Park! Each of our Day Hikes explores a different area of the park (see below for hike descriptions).

Hit the trails with us and meet other outdoor-loving families, learn about local plants and animals, get in some good exercise in the fresh air, and enjoy your packed lunch with a beautiful view. We’ll provide you with further details, including meet-up location when you register.

All hikes take place from 10 AM to 2 PM.

Feel free to email camp@thenatureplace.com for any questions prior to registration.

Note: As we will be covering some miles, please consider your child/ren’s hiking capacity before deciding to attend. 

Cost: $25 per adult, $10 per child
