Last Sunday, I went to Pine Meadow Lake in Harriman State Park; all of this was made possible by Discover Outdoors, which provides round-trip transportation from NYC and New Jersey for city-dwellers who crave a day trip out in nature.
Though it was difficult to get myself out of bed early on a Sunday morning, and the forecast promised at least some light showers, the weather miraculously held up — and I managed not to wilt until I got home. Discover Outdoors (formerly Outdoor Bound) provides clean, comfortable vehicles and knowledgeable, friendly guides. Their hikes list the skill level required, recommended gear, and explain the itinerary and expectations in-depth, in a clear and straightforward manner.
For anyone craving a day trip, weekend trip, or even longer adventure out in nature, Discover Outdoors has something for everyone, from hike and hound trips to wine and horseback-riding trips, to longer international travels. Groups are kept small, and you always meet an interesting group of friendly people. Oh, and day trips are more than affordable!
So, if like me, you love city life but crave nature, fresh air and greenery, Discover Outdoors helps you find an adventure in nature.
