Announcement

THE FALL FOLIAGE SEASON IS HERE!
Starting the first week of October, we are starting to see the change in the color of the leaves in Harriman State Park. Although the unseasonably warm weather in the past few weeks has slowed down the change in color, the foliage in the higer elevations of the Adirondacks is at or near its peak. Bear Mountain area is experiencing a 20% change while NYC to LI is less than 10%. The above-average temperatures have extended the foliage season to almost the second week of November. CMCNY has added several regular and family hikes especially for the enjoyment of the leaf color change in the mountains and forests. Check regularly on our schedule for these added hikes.
October is also the perfect time for joining CMCNY membership. You can join membership during your first activity with us and the yearly membership term will extend to the end of 2018. You will find more information in the membership section.
