Then we proceed up Little Tor to Phillips Hill, Main Street, Old 304, Goebbels to 304 to Old Haverstraw Road into Congers to Lake Street then to Rockland Lake. And back!

Meet up at Nyack’s Memorial Park at 830a. You can park in the park, but we start at meet at the corner of Depew & Piermont Aves. Look for us there!
