The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree is a world-wide symbol of the holidays in New York City. This year, the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree will be lit for the first time on Wednesday, December 3, 2014. Tens of thousands will crowd the sidewalks for the event and hundreds of millions will watch it live across the globe. The tree will remain lit and can be viewed until 8 pm on January 7, 2015.
Get inspired by the beauty of fall colors and enjoy the outdoors on this light hike. Our Urban Park Ranger hiking guides will introduce you to some amazing trees found in New York City.
Light hikes are a leisurely stroll on mostly paved paths. For all hiking programs we recommend wearing comfortable shoes or boots, and packing water and a light snack.
