The vessel located in Hudson Yards in New York City is quite a spectacle. It's architecturally fascinating and a really fun way to get your steps in! It's located near the high line and multiple great dining options. So, when you're finished taking pictures and enjoying the views from high above, you can easily grab something to eat or make your way to enjoy a walk on the high line.

The Storm King hike in Cornwall, NY is such a great beginner to intermediate hike. I love doing this hike in the summertime with friends. There are a few steep inclines, but there are flat stretches too. The views are great! I'd recommend packing lunch or a snack to stop for a picnic break at one of the lookouts.

I love the hike to Anthony's Nose in Bear Mountain State Park, NY. I've done it several times before and will continue to go back when the weather is warm. The beginning part is definitely a workout, but the views at the top are stunning. I love doing this hike with family and friends.

I like accessing the OCA Trail from the Ossining, NY side. Parking is not typically crowded. Since the trail is quite extensive, but a straight-line path, I've found it to be a great place for both short and long runs. In the Fall, the leaves changing colors make it a beautiful spot.

This low impact, beginner hike in Rye, NY is relatively short, yet rather scenic. The water views are serene. You'll want to snap some pics. It's the perfect family friendly low commitment hike.
