Meet at the George Washington Bridge Bus Terminal Information Booth, 178th St at Broadway. Join Shorewalkers on a shortened version of the environmental group’s annual Great Saunter, a 32-mile walk around Manhattan’s rim. This six-mile, all-levels hike takes three to four hours, but participants can opt out around the two-hour mark at 207th Street. A bottle of water and weather-appropriate duds are all you’ll need to gaze at the picturesque Harlem River shoreline, as well as historical sites at Inwood Hill (which features the city’s largest glacial pothole) and Highbridge Parks (home to New York’s oldest standing bridge).
Happy New Year’s Day Hike
