Warwick residents Gene Giordano and John DeSanto will offer a multi-media presentation entitled, “Hiking the Appalachian Trail in Warwick, N.Y.” on Tues., Jul. 11 at 6:30 p.m. at the Albert Wisner Public Library, located at 1 McFarland Dr. in Warwick.
The pair will present photographs, share personal reports as well as hiking tips and outline how easy it is to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. Giordano is the Appalachian Trail Community Lead and DeSanto is the Appalachian Trail Community Ambassador for the Town of Warwick.
The A.T., which winds its way more than 2,180 miles from Springer Mountain, GA all the way to Mount Katahdin, ME, first enters New York at the Warwick border with New Jersey and exits into Monroe near Fitzgerald Falls.
The pair have created a new mobile-friendly website – www.hikewarwick.com – which will help hikers sort trails by difficulty, find parking, offer safety tips, and direct visitors to amenities located in the Villages of Greenwood Lake and Warwick.
