Please keep your replies up to date and limited to what you are able to attend.

You can remove yourself from being listed as GOING by clicking on EDIT RSVP and change it to NOT GOING.

If you are unable to attend an event and don't change your hike response, it costs other hikers the opportunity to be on the hike. Signing up for multiple hikes held at the same time produces the same result.

Thanks for your cooperation.

TO GO ON THIS HIKE YOU MUST BE ONE OF THE 50 PEOPLE LISTED.

WITH MORE THAN 70% OF NEW YORKERS VACCINATED MANY COVID RESTRICTIONS HAVE BEEN LIFTED, HOWEVER WE WILL CONTINUE FOLLOWING THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE CDC, WHICH MEANS THAT UNVACCINATED PEOPLE STILL NEED TO WEAR MASKS WHEN SOCIAL DISTANCING IS NOT POSSIBLE.
