About The Trek
Embark on three day-hikes through Letchworth State Park, Griffis Sculpture Park, and Stony Brook. Each day will be a new adventure through the New York wilderness as you experience light hiking trails, streams, sculptures, and even the occasional swimming area. You will stay in a cabin at Letchworth State Park. You will be accompanied by 29 other first-years and five upperclassmen leaders. No outdoor experience necessary.
Difficulty: 1/5
