NY Adventure Club Field Trip: Exploring the Secrets of the NJ Palisades


Sunday, May 20th at 10:30 AM at the Burr-Hamilton Duel Site statue

The ruins of an abandoned mansion, a haunted clock tower in the middle of NJ’s wealthiest neighborhood, a scenic overlook on a 500-foot-high cliff — come explore the secrets of the narrow stretch of land right across from New York City.

Join New York Adventure Club for a field trip to the New Jersey Palisades, NJ, a line of steep cliffs along the west side of the lower Hudson River in northeastern New Jersey and southeastern New York formed nearly 200 million years ago.

Guided by a New York Adventure Club brand ambassador, this unique field trip will include:

A mile-long trail walk to the abandoned ruins of Cliffdale Manor, a fifteen-room manor house built in 1911 for George A. Zabriskie, New York representative for the Minneapolis-based Pillsbury flour mills

A visit to a hidden beach on the Hudson

A visit to incredible vantage points along the Palisades, from directly underneath the GW Bridge to high on top of cliffs overlooking the Hudson River

A stop at the Devil’s Tower, a stone clock tower originally designed for sugar baron Manuel Rionda (1854–1943) that is claimed to be haunted

Vehicular transportation will be provided to/from meeting location and between all field trip destinations.

See you there!
