20 Mile Hike to Manhattan

The 20 mile hike to Times Square was one of our most challenging and enjoyable hikes. Seven members of Troop 2 (plus three adults) hiked from Hastings to Times Square in Manhattan. That worked out to 21 miles, actually, plus one more mile to Grand Central to catch the Metro-North Railroad back to Hastings. An additional two scouts hiked the initial 11-mile segment from Hastings to Inwood. We enjoyed donuts at Twin Donut, and lunch under the George Washington Bridge. Part of the hike included a cold rain. Always bring rain gear!
