Hiking Club

Enjoy challenging nature hikes to regions on Long Island’s East End, Harriman State Park, the Delaware Water Gap and the majestic Appalachian Trail (a trail that goes from Maine to Georgia). Learn how to follow a trail map so that, if so inclined, you may enjoy hiking for years to come. Learn more about geological phenomena that makes New York State what it is today. You will know what it feels like to climb an approx. 2000 foot mountain, walk across a refreshing mountain stream and, in the winter, climb across a frozen lake. In addition, you will become educated about the wildlife and plant life that New York has to offer. The Hiking Club provides opportunities for adventurous experiences.

For more information, please contact Mr. Moran.

Permission slips for each hike will become available the Monday before the hike. The hikes are on a first come first served basis. We will generally leave Kellenberg at 7:30 am and return to school around 3:30 pm. The permission slips will state the specific times and places for each hike.

 

Please listen to morning announcements for the dates of the hikes.
