Event Type Walk/Hike Description Join New York State Senator Pete Harckham for a hike into Peekskill's hidden gem, Fort Hill Park. The moderate hike will include a walk through wooded, dirt trails and will include a semi steep ascent and descent as the territory varies in elevation. The trail will consist of some uneven, semi rocky territory. Hiking boots and comfortable clothing are recommended. The trail through this woodland is amazingly just blocks from Peekskill’s busy Main Street and will lead you to fascinating rock formations, meandering stone walls and the natural beauty of the park; offering a peaceful place to escape for a fall morning. Water and a light snack will be distributed at the beginning of the hike but please feel free to bring your own. Sponsoring Organization Office of New York State Senator Pete Harckham
