CK goes out for a walk...
Adventures on the Appalachian Trail

August 8 CK crosses into New York from Connecticut. 

The New York portion of the trail is 88 miles. The wildness of the A.T. is surprisingly close to New York City. You can take a bus from the city and be on the Trail within an hour. The trail crosses the Hudson River, entering Harriman-Bear Mountain State Park, where the first section of the A.T. was completed in 1923. Heading south, the trail then passes through the newly protected Sterling Forest.
