Support HERO RECHARGE and Extend the Healing Power of Adventure to Frontline Healthcare Workers
Head out of the city for a day filled with awesome people, beautiful hiking, and some mindfulness practice. Our friends at Discover Outdoors will guide us on this glorious five mile hike with spectacular viewpoints.
The majority of our climb will come in the first two miles where we will climb nearly 900 vertical feet. After hiking a short section of the famous Appalachian Trail we will follow a mountain ridge until we arrive at the secluded Surprise Lake for lunch. Whether you’re a beginner or an avid hiker, this program has something for everyone and is open to all levels! The trail is subject to change due to crowds on trails and state regulations but the elevation, hike length, and hike difficulty level will remain similar.
Since we know not everyone can fit a multi-day program into their schedule, this is a great chance to feel recharged, connected to nature, and experience a little bit of First Descents in one day.
Discover Outdoors will provide transportation and lunch for the day so you just have to bring yourself! This adventure is open to any healthcare workers from New York state.
