A roundup akin to a greatest hits playlist, including day hikes near Philly & approachable Adirondack treks.

As proud purveyors of outdoor-approved and environmentally friendly apparel and accessories, we’re always game to trade out city sidewalks for a well-worn trail. And since we’ve been known to spend our weekends chasing views of Pennsylvania’s Loyalsock Creek Gorge or crossing another Adirondack 46er off our list, we asked our Philadelphia & New York teams to share a handful of their go-to trails.
