It is late fall and officially, Winter will arrive December 22nd (Winter Solstice) – but cold weather is NEVER a reason to stay cooped up and inactive – git out and HIKE!

Harriman Hikers has published an informative and helpful article for the purpose of assisting those who would like to hike in the cooler weather prepare and outfit themselves properly for such activity – Oufitting and dressing yourself properly is not as hard and cold weather hiking is more fun than you might think!

Don’t be a hermit this Winter – come out and join us in the great outdoors!

Harriman Hikers is a hiking club for single adults of all ages. We meet up for hiking EVERY SUNDAY at 11:30 am in the South Parking Lots, Field B-1, of the Ramapo College of New Jersey on Route 202 in Mahwah, NJ. Please see the Harriman Hikers home page for complete information about Harriman Hikers.

Please note that Harriman Hikers hikes are what many would consider “intermediate level”, which is to say, “hikers should be in good physical condition and under prevailing weather conditions, capable of hiking 7-8 miles over hilly and rocky wilderness terrain where some hills can be steep”.
