“Greenbrook History Hike” with Eric Nelsen, Palisades Interstate Park

Saturday, March 24, 2018

On Saturday morning, March 24, historical PIP interpreter Eric Nelsen will lead a hiking tour through Greenbrook Sanctuary, a cliff-top nature preserve established in Tenafly in 1946. Hike is around 3 miles in about 2 hours on moderate trails through the sometimes rugged terrain of the preserve, which is normally open only to members of Palisades Nature Assoc. and their guests. The hike will explore vestiges of the area’s role as the site of two Civilian Conservation Corps Camps (CCC) during the Great Depression, when the “New Deal” agency put a couple million young men to work on conservation projects across the country, as well as earlier history, including “Falcon Lodge,” the 19th-century summer estate of the Lamb family. The Sanctuary’s entrance is off U.S. Route 9W, 4.7 miles north of the GW Bridge. Non-PNA members are urged to arrive promptly, as entrance gate will be closed shortly after 10 AM. Call the PIP, 201-768-1360 ext.108, to confirm if weather is questionable.
