ALPINE, N.J. -- “Who Rock,” the final hike in the Palisades Interstate Park summer series of “Rachel’s Rangers,” will be Tuesday, Aug. 18, leaving from State Line Lookout in Alpine at 10 a.m., according to The Record.

The hikes are designed for children seven or older, who must be accompanied by an adult. They are led by the staff of the Kearney House, and will be held “drizzle or shine,” The Record said.  No advance registration is necessary, and the hikes are free. Just come to the Lookout, with your grownup escort, in plenty of time before the 10 a.m. - noon hike begins.

The “Who Rock” hike will cover approximately 3 miles on trails that are fairly easy, The Record said, and lasts about 2 hours. It follows the Long Path along the top of the Palisades cliffs, stops for a visit at the Woman’s Federation Monument, sometimes called The Castle, and ends up at “Who Rock,” with a stunning view over the Hudson River.

This series of summer hikes is named after Rachel Kearney, who raised her family in the Kearney House, where she also kept a tavern, in the 1800’s, according to The Record. It’s sponsored by the historic Kearney House, located at the north end of the Alpine Picnic Area.

State Line Lookout is right off the northbound side of the Palisades Interstate Parkway, just south of the New Jersey - New York state line, opposite Exit 3.
