“Great trails with amazing views of the Hudson”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Heard about the trails from a friend and we weren't disappointed. The trails can get rocky in some places, but mostly enjoyable. We took the Blue Hill trail and it was manageable and very enjoyable. Will definitely come back again to hike and maybe see the beach.

“Gorgeous Views and Challenging Hikes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

My fiance and I hiked these trails last summer and were happily surprised that they were as much of a challenge as other folks had mentioned they were. Breakneck Ridge is definitely not your typical "leisurely" climb - much of it requires you to climb over steep rocks and paths. The view from the peak, however, is gorgeous. Make sure you pack a lunch for the top as you'll certainly be hungry and thirsty after the climb!

“short but demanding hikes,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

From Breakneck Ridge, directly across the river from West Point, to Mount Beacon, the northernmost peak in the Hudson Highlands, the views are well worth the hike.
On a clear day the top of the Empire State Building is visible from the top of Mount Taurus (Bull Hill).
