Everything you wanted to know about the Long Path...but were afraid to ask!

Join Ken Posner for a talk on New York's greatest trail, the 358-mile Long Path which stretches from New York City all the way to Thacher State Park outside Albany, along the way crossing through some of the Hudson Valley's most magical spots including the Palisades, Harriman, Shawangunks, Catskills, and the Schoharie Valley.  The presentation will feature the history of the Long Path, including the voice of historical figures like Walt Whitman and John Burroughs, landscape images by award-winning photographer Steve Aaron, discussion of planning and gear, and some of Ken's adventures during his 2013 record-setting thru-run of the trail.

Ken is a financial analyst, ultra-runner, and board member and volunteer trail supervisor for the NY-NJ Trail Conference.  "Running the Long Path," an account of the 2013 thru-run, is available on Amazon.  You can follow his blog at
