Historic Escarpment (6/2) - Outdoorfest
This special adventure will take place Sunday of the Outdoorfest campout and will depart only from Staten Island, but is open to the public. (Return locations below)
Learn more about Outdoorfest, an incredible week of outdoors adventures throughout New York City, starting with the campout.
The Escarpment is a three thousand foot wall of ledges and cliffs that rises abruptly from the Hudson Valley along the eastern edge of the Catskills, providing jaw dropping views over the valley and, on a clear day, into Massachusetts, Vermont and Connecticut. This particular area of the Escarpment has been a popular destination for hiking for over 200 years and there is a reason the famed hotels of the Catskills’ Golden era were located here. Come explore the legendary viewpoints, forests, brooks, and lakes that inspired the Hudson River Valley School of Painters and authors like James Fenimore Cooper who brought the Catskills national renown.
