Our Mission

At Vertically Inclined our mission is to provide our clients with the best, qualitative experience; providing a smaller group setting and photographically documenting the day, for lasting enjoyment, at no extra cost. All our guides are licensed and registered with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to provide our clients with an educational and safe adventure.

Vertically Inclined visits more locations than our competitors, we have extensive knowledge of the areas we visit and all of our trips include transportation, as well as, gear for our overnights. Having a convenient meeting location means less time driving to and from the NYC area and more time out on the trail – more time to enjoy your hike. We know our clients want to get away from the everyday stressors of the city, Enjoy the outdoors and experience something new. Smaller group sizes mean less impact on the trails and the environment, which is the leave-no-trace way. We take pride in providing adventures that include the top 50 hikes in the NYC area; ranging from easy to strenuous – custom tailored to our clients’ fitness and experience levels, ensuring your well-being is first. We only hire experienced guides and they go through a rigorous process of training to ensure they have knowledge of the areas hiked.  Our adventures vary in miles and elevations but all include panoramic views and memories you will not soon forget.
