Children can enjoy a free series of hiking adventures in the Palisades Interstate Park system. The hikes, which last about two hours and cover close to three miles, are led by the staff of the Kearney House and held “drizzle or shine” with no advance registration required. The recommended age is 7 and older. Children must be accompanied by an adult on all hikes. Upon completing two more hikes, children receive a certificate naming them an official “Rachel’s Ranger.” The series is named after Rachel Kearney, who raised her family and kept a tavern at the Kearney House in the 1800s. Kearney House in the Alpine Boat Basin, 9W, Alpine. For more information, call (201) 768-1360, ext. 108, or visit njpalisades.org.
