I’ve done the Breakneck Ridge hike a few times but this was my first time with my dog. I have seen many others bring their dog so I figured we would be okay. We made it but I honestly wouldn’t recommend it unless your dog...More
This hike is not a walk in the park. It is very steep at times and honestly, dangerous. It's very popular and very rewarding once you reach the top. The view from the top is unbeatable. I've hiked this easily 10-15 times already.

We took the 8:45 am train from grand central on Sunday.
The hike is...More
