Outdoor Bound Adventures' fearless fleet of highly trained and traveled guides takes thrill-seeking city dwellers on expeditions throughout New York and around the world. Break free from the crushing confines of corner offices and walk-in sock drawers with a choice of delightfully alfresco day trips, including a 6-mile jaunt to Ship Rock Ridge ($59), an 8-mile hike to a secluded lake in Harriman State Park ($59), and a two hour horseback ride followed by a wine tasting in the Hudson Valley. Groups embarking on a trip to Kaaterskill Falls ($69), a two-tiered 260-foot waterfall, travel 8 miles through the Catskill Mountains while slowly ascending to an elevation of 3,000 feet for picturesque views of local raccoon mansions. Zipline tours provide a parrot's-eye view of the forest with an aerial ropes course, and once the seasons change wintertime adventures include snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and ice climbing.
Outdoor Bound Adventures matches its tireless pursuit of fresh-air fun with respect for the environment. Guided by the principles set forth by the Leave No Trace program, each Outdoor Bound trip is designed to minimize environmental impact and promote ecological awareness.
Thinking of the city rarely calls images of fog-ringed mountains and wolf-filled forests to mind, but Discover Outdoors—formerly known as Outdoor Bound—turns these scenes into reality. Owner, avid outdoorsman, and eight-time marathon runner Kirk Reynolds makes sure of it. He and a staff of experts—each a licensed trail guide and Wilderness First Responder or Wilderness EMT—temper the stress of city living with day trips to nearby natural enclaves and weekend camping excursions. The getaways thrill with activities such as hiking, rock climbing, whitewater rafting, kayaking, and horseback riding.
International trips, meanwhile, quench a thirst for life-defining adventures beyond trips to the grocery store during peak Saturday hours. Among them: hikes up famed Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa, treks to Machu Picchu in Peru, and jaunts through the Canadian Rockies. Some of the journeys even grant travelers the opportunity to fundraise for a worthy cause as they explore.
