New York may have more dirty paved streets than nature-filled hiking trails, but soon the city landscape (pothole covers and all) are going to be used for the first-ever outdoor adventure festival called Outdoor Rise.

Organized by Discover Outdoors, Outdoor Rise is a full week of 600 events happening across all five boroughs—ranging from yoga and rock climbing, to biking, kayaking, and photography classes, from June 17–23.

“For one week, New York City will become the epicenter of the outdoor universe,” says Discover Outdoors owner and adventure guide Kirk Reynolds (i.e., the one part of the universe it isn’t already the epicenter of).

Highlights include hiking the High Line, bouldering in Central Park, urban stand-up paddleboarding, mountain biking in Queens, and meet-and-greets with adventure celebs like Jennifer Pharr Davis, the record holder for the fastest thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail, and pro rock climber Kevin Jorgeson. And a nifty bonus: the adventures are all free with registration.
