Hiking, the best way to connect to Nature

Stroll along streams to see the beautiful cascades and waterfalls. The running water is music to the ears. Hike up steep slopes to strenghten the heart and lung. Watch your steps on slippery rocks and muddy trails. Wait to see the rainbow after a rain. Feel the breeze on mountain tops and watch the moving clouds. Feel the freedom of the flying eagles on the cliffs and roaming deers in the woods. Mr. Gin Goon founded CMCNY in 1986 to introduce outdoor activities to the Asian community. His dedication to the club had influenced us to enbrace nature and find reliefs in outdoor activities. In honoring Gin Goon, CMCNY starts off the Spring/ Summer activities with the Gin's Hikes: Challenge, Medium range and Junior levels.
