Get Ready For National Trails Day With Hike The Heights VI
Hike the Heights is an annual family-friendly event that combines art, physical activity, and fun. The day is composed of hiking Northern Manhattan Park Trails, participating in artistic activities, and celebrating. The hikes culminate in a festival of the parks celebration, or a “neighborhood potluck party” of group contributions.
Walking proudly into it’s 6th year, Nursha Project is proud to provide services for Hike the Heights VI, an event organized by CLIMB (City Life Is Moving Bodies).
