During the past 22 years, Shorewalkers created waterfront hiking around the NY area, and in the process, improved the health and stamina of thousands of walkers, as we led them where they had never been before – sometimes cul-de-sacs and dusty dead end paths.

 Shorewalkers is dedicated to protecting open space and scenic trails for all to enjoy. We lead over 100 free, guided hikes each year. Volunteers have donated over 10,000 hours to improving the environment and showing people where to walk in nature.

Our map of the 56-mile Batt-To-Bear Trail (Battery to Bear Mountain) is free on our website. Two guide books by Shorewalkers' President Cy Adler, Walking Manhattan’s Rim, & Walking the Hudson, Batt-To-Bear are acknowledged as unique, and in demand.

HARLEM RIVER VALLEY MAP/GUIDE PUBLISHED JANUARY 2007. We have created a 4-color map guide which gives details of the parks, historic sights and schools and bridges in the area. Now we seek help with printing and distribution of the map. Help distribute the map and develop support for the Grand Harlem River Park.

Join Shorewalkers; explore the city around its edges, meet new friends; help us conserve our parks and greenways; help develop new places to walk in nature.

Membership is still only $20 per year.
