Hike the Heights is made possible by CLIMB (City Life Is Moving Bodies)
Hike the Heights is an annual community hike and celebration in northern Manhattan parks that promotes the use of the Giraffe Path, an urban trail that connects the Cloisters to Central Park. This family-friendly event invites New Yorkers to explore and celebrate the area’s natural treasures by combining physical activity, art, and fun!
After the hike join us for a celebration in Highbridge Park. The neighborhood party has arts, games, food, and fun! It serves as a neighborhood “potluck,” meaning each individual, group, or organization participating in the event contributes something to the day: arts and craft stations, sport clinics, music and dancing, and – of course – their time, energy, and donations. The community flavor of the event makes it feel like a family picnic, even though many of the participants are meeting for the first time!
