Just because you live in the Big Apple doesn't mean you can't spend time in the great outdoors. There are amazing family-friendly hikes close to NYC—in fact, the Bronx River Greenway and Inwood Hill Park are right in the middle of the city!
So: Check the weather, pack a picnic and make plans to visit mother nature with the fam. These hiking trails are great for children of all ages, from toddlers out for a stroll to bigger kids looking to go for a scramble. Hiking is one of the best things New York City Families can do right now.
After all, it's up to you to make this summer great. The pools are closed (bummer), as are the beaches (for now). But you can go for a spin on the best bike trails in NYC for families, or head out of town for berry picking—nothing says summer like a little PYO.
