OUTWalking is an outdoor hiking and walking group for the LGBTQ community.


Join OUTWalking at beautiful Cranberry Lake Preserve which features several miles of trails that will take us past a diverse array of habitats, including a four acre lake, meadows, cliffs, swamp and forest.

Date: Sunday March 31st
10:00 AM  - Meet in front of the Nature Lodge right next to the parking lot

Location: Cranberry Lake Preserve
1609 Old Orchard St, West Harrison, NY 10604     

The group will initially walk along the main trail which is a 2.4 mile long loop around the perimeter of the 190 acre property. For those interested in continuing on after the initial walk, we will also partake in a 2 mile history loop which will take us past the quarry that was utilized to build the nearby Kensico Dam. There are also several additional trails that pass around Cranberry Lake and along a mossy uplands trail. The trails are good for all skill levels and participants are welcome to leave at any time. If you have any questions, feel free to contact group leader, Joe Nappi,  at jdnappi@gmail.com

Please RSVP to group leader Joe Nappi at jdnappi@gmail.com if you're interested in joining us. Those who RSVP will be notified of changes due to inclement weather.

Hope to see you there!
