Join the Friends of FDR on a two-mile round trip hike to enjoy the "other side of FDR".  Last year's First Day Hike took visitors to the outlet stream. Now it is possible to walk across the outlet stream thanks bridges and board walks.

This hike is a great introduction to a part of the park that has been seldom visited. Enjoy a scenic area by the bridges and views out over Crom Pond.

Through stories and in pictures, learn about the other side of the park and what the Friends of FDR and its partners are doing to improve the visitor experience. to promote the park.
