Here's another great reason to come out this Spring!!

This hike will take us to the Northeastern edge of the state, right along the Hudson River. From the parking lot, we'll descend down steep man-made stairs to the river, where we'll begin the challenging climb across giant stairs. Bring your cameras out for this hike!

Just wanted to make a note that there is a state line cafe along with facilities at the base of the parking lot.

See you then!!

Hiked these trails for years. I grew up minutes from start point. Very wooded and huge drops if your into that sort of thing. Curious where Noah will lead us. Should be good.

Actually did this hike on Saturday. Not at all meant for those who are beginners. Just FYI for those who've never hiked this area or for those interested. The rock scramble along the water is rather serious -- this loop took us just under 3 hours and the climb up is rugged! Be sure to stretch before this one!!
