We discovered this on the HiketheHudsonValley web site, and it looked interesting, so we decided to give it a go on a fine May morning (and afternoon). Hiking up from the east, you get to see sweeping vistas of the Hudson Valley: really nice views....More

If you're looking for a nice place to hike on a weekend, Schunnemunk State Park is about 90 minutes north of NYC. Take exit 16 off the Thruway and head north on Route 32. It's beautiful in Autumn, and the trails are not too challenging....More
