Every season brings new outdoor opportunities. Hiking is one of the best ways to get connected to the natural world! Take the time to renew & refresh your spirit by getting outside. Whether hiking solo, or with family & friends, you're bound to discover something new.

Try something different like combining art with nature. Above, the Storm King Art Center this fall in New York's Hudson Valley - the center re-opens in April - the perfect time for a spring hike.
