Backpacker Magazine – January 2014
Take in a beautiful waterfall in Pennsylvania, spend the night in of New York's iconic mountain huts, and take a day trip out of NYC.
Though close enough to NYC for day trips, this 20-mile, north-south path is woodsy enough to feel plenty removed. Mountain laurel blossoms in June, summer brings swarms of monarch butterflies, and migratory birds stop over during the spring and fall. But Bill Bohn’s favorite season is winter, with snow on the ground and through-the-trees views over the Sound. Contact (631) 360-0753; Website
