Beacon Fire Tower Hike
Join us on the difficult but rewarding trek up to Mt. Beacon Fire Tower. Together, we’ll work hard to reach the tower where 360° views of our surroundings await us. On a clear day, you can even see the N.Y.C. skyline! After we descend from the mountain, you can spend the rest of your day exploring the charming Hudson Valley town of Beacon.
Sign up for all the details including the complete schedule and meeting point.
