DSCN0336The first mile of this hike is steep and rocky, steps were made from the stone in some areas.

Don’t worry though, after that, it really isn’t that bad. The trail turns right onto an access road as seen below. Their is a slight uphill grade, and no more boulders. Also shown below is a swamp near the top, for once the kids were not begging to jump in .

The end of the trail comes to a T intersecting, with  small trails to the left and the right, both leading to vistas.

The trail to the right opens up to a rocky outcropping. You will get a panoramic view of the Hudson River and its valley. It is an active area, from the mountain we saw boats, planes, and helicopters. Great for any day spring or fall.

 

 

 

Come check out the Hudson Valley, we did several hikes the day we came to town. We really enjoyed the area and its sites. No doubt we will be back soon.
