Imagine a journey undertaken on foot, bike and boat that starts in pristine wilderness at a hidden mountain lake, giving rise to one World’s great rivers. Then follow that river as it winds its way downstream, carving a course through a lush valley before finishing as a colossal waterway amidst the most famous icons in America in the hustle and bustle of New York City. This is Source to City – a multi-sport descent of the mighty Hudson River traversing all 300 miles of its course.
