4th Annual NY Summer Solstice Hike and Skinny Dip
June 21 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
4th Annual Skinny Dip Hike in the Ramapo Mountains of NY with Beth Nolan
As has become our annual tradition, we will welcome the arrival of summer by hiking and skinny dipping in the Ramapo Mountains! (Harriman State Park.) The 2017 solstice and hike is on Wednesday, June 21st.
This is our 4th year doing this hike and you can read a recap of the 2016 hike written by one of the participants. The event was started by our naked yoga instructor friend Beth Nolan, and the attendance seems to grow every year!
The hike is approximately one hour going in, so about two hours of hiking in total. There are some steep uphill climbs, but it’s not too strenuous. You should wear sneakers or hiking boots.
There are 2 lakes to explore and cool off in. The 2nd lake is the main destination and where the group will sit down, relax and picnic.
At least a few people usually free hike (hike naked), but we cannot guarantee the opportunity to do so. There are of course non-naturists who visit the park and we need to be respectful of them. But as always, all genders, men and women, can legally go topfree.
Cost: There is no fee to enter the park. However we do request that participants become a member of YNA to support us as an organization and help us continue organizing events like this!
What to bring: Water, lunch, towel, sunscreen and bug spray. When the sky is clear, it’s very open and sunny at our swimming areas (with shade to be found more inland). Feel free to also bring a raft / float and any games you might bring to the beach. (Trash is carry in, carry out.)
Where and when to meet: The group will meet at the Sebago Lake parking lot / boat launch at 10am. The meeting spot is located off Seven Lakes Drive, a few miles from Rt 87. There’s no exact address, but the GPS coordinates are: 41.198029, -74.129615. Here’s a link to view it on Google maps.
We usually hike back down the mountain by 3pm, though some people also leave earlier or stay later. You may want to stop off and buy a trail map at the park Visitor Center.
Carpooling / transportation: The meeting point is about a 45 – 60 minute drive from Manhattan. We will rent a passenger van for transportation if there is enough interest. Please email us if you would be interested in getting a van ride – ynaevents [at[ gmail [dot [ com. (The cost would be around $35 per person.)
If you are driving from NYC and would like to offer a ride to others, please also contact us!
By train: The nearby town of Sloatsburg is accessible by public transportation via Metro North trains. The train station is a few miles from the meeting point. If you want to go by train, contact us in advance and we’ll see about getting you picked up from the station.
