Cornell Bushwhack (5/29)
Getting to the summit of Cornell, one of the most remote peaks in the Park, usually requires climbing either Slide or Wittenberg, two of the most popular peaks in the Park. Our route traces that of the naturalist John Burroughs and takes you through a wide open valley and up through two old-growth forests to the summit. Our favorite part of the hike? The look on the faces of other hikers as they see us emerge from the forest at the summit!
Cardio Intensity: Very Challenging.
Terrain: Primarily off-trail. Very steep, with some scrambling sections that require using hands for balance. Dense forest on the approach to and at the summit.
All adventures include:
- Lunch and snacks on our adventure (Note: we offer vegetarian and vegan options and we’re happy to accommodate any dietary and allergy needs)
- Transportation option: includes transportation from/to New York City with convenient pickup locations near the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and Grand Central in Manhattan and a breakfast of fresh fruit and donuts with a selection of coffees and teas
