20 Mile Hike to Manhattan

T2, pre-hike
Bright Lights, Big City
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!
