Join the Friends of FDR on a two-mile round trip hike to enjoy the "other side of FDR".  2017'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.
