I hiked for the first time this past weekend with my daughter and best friend and it was phenomenal! This is a very impressive park with lots of views! I ended up in pain at the end but it was worth it! Definitely recommend this awesome park!

This river front park has 30 miles of trails and amazing views of NYCity. There are some parking areas, so I recommend you choose carefully according to the activities you want to do. We parked at the Englewood picnic area which is in the middle of the park. From there we took the path south towards Fort Lee. It is a quite manageable walk during which you can enjoy amazing views of the George Washington bridge and the city. This walk is by the river, but then it is totally worth it to go up to Fort Lee. More great views! There are a lot of picnic areas, the park is very clean, but very crowded. Some areas are dog and bike friendly, but others are not. So research carefully before you go.

Very scenic and beautiful drive way and hikes on the way. A favorite drive way in NJ/NY when u have to go for a short drive.

usually heavily trafficked, Giants Stairs trail is the most challenging in Palisades. The trail steeply descends to the shore of Hudson River, and then lasts more than a mile over the Giant Stairs - a long section of huge boulders having tumbled from Palisades - before finally comes back up. We started hike right before a T-storm, so some web surface made Giant Stairs even more challenging and we had to scramble, sometimes with both hands. But the rewarding view made all the efforts worthwhile. The trail is a relatively short 4.5 miles. A good pair of hiking shoes/boots will help. Highly recommended.

This place is absolutely beautiful. I was just here in the fall, but I could imagine at any time of the year would be amazing. There are places you can walk and there are some pretty challenging hiking trails as well. There is a concession shop there as well.
