The 7 best hikes near New York City

By Rebecca Fishbein, Wed, June 13, 2018

In New York City, the “outdoors” can consist solely of backyard bar happy hours and occasional picnics in Central or Prospect Park. But when the urban landscape starts to feel oppressive, your legs start itching to scale a mountain, and Brooklyn Boulders just isn’t going to do it for you this time, there are a number of quick escapes just outside the city that offer easy to difficult nature hikes and treks. Some of these are easily accessible by Metro-North; some might require a car or bus ticket, and some happen to be in the city itself, provided you consider Staten Island within its borders. All of them feature great views, exercise, fresh air, and the occasional tree, how novel! Ahead, discover our favorites.
