I came with a friend to this park on a December weekday late afternoon. When I was here, admission was free. It can be hard to get parking on a weekend, but it was relatively empty on a weekday. There are many options on elevation; I crossed steep hills and flat lands. The views of the mountains, the Hudson River, the foliage, the birds, and the skyline of Westchester County were outrageous! Strangely, though, I did see quite a few fish dead fish along the trail.

Wow oh wow!! I never knew I would stumble on this amazing location. It was quiet with people jogging and cycling on the walkway close to the beautiful ocean view!! Great adventure, great exercise, wonderful scenic places to take amazing pictures !! The only spooky place was in the restroom. No lights so you have to do what you got to do quick !! Pack the drinks and food or snacks, nothing in the area for sale. Trust me take some time to find this hidden jem and enjoy and you can thank me later.

Took my 3 pups here on a Saturday morning in June and it was wonderful. Not too hot and a nice breeze going off the river. We stopped and they went swimming in the river. Only parking on the top now due to the wall collapse so might be hard with a stroller/ coolers/ wheelchair.

I enjoy sitting by the water with friends or family eating lunch at the picnic tables. The views are gorgeous & very peaceful area.
I grew up in the area & this is my favorite place to chill, bring a cup of coffee & a good book & you will feel so relaxed!

Nice and flat walkway along the Hudson River. You can extend the walk to either Rockland lake or Haverstraw; but these are uphill and trickier, dirt bikes only.
The paved trail is great for a stroll with the dog or the kids on bikes. Nice views all along, if needed there are lots of benches and picnic tables along the trail.

The walkway along the river is lovely, and the woods trails are also quite nice. Most of the cyclists are respectful of pedestrians, but some are not. Both times I've been to this park, I've nearly been hit by a cyclist riding incredibly fast. Yesterday, if my husband hadn't shoved me out of the way, I would have been hit and most likely severely injured. I asked the cyclist to slow down, but he didn't even acknowledge me. Honesty, I'm a cyclist too, and I wouldn't want to abolish bicycles from the park, but a couple of signs might be helpful, reminding the cyclists that the path is not just for them, and not a place to practice racing. These disrespectful and dangerous cyclists have all been adults, by the way. The children are always quite respectful of pedestrians.

Was very clean and not crowded. Kids had a great time.
There was no interaction with staff as it was not necessary.
Would recommend

We hiked along the Hudson here with interesting rock formations, passing seasoned hikers (we are not) and bikers. It was quiet and peaceful, with benches often to sit.

Unexpected gem in the area. We got here a little late in the day so we were not able to park in the main lot but the friendly worker at the gate told us where to park in the surrounding neighborhood. It was a little hike from the car so I'd recommend going early in the day. The views of the bridge are exceptional here. I did notice they had an area closed due to some erosion, rockslide type problem. Nice flat hike, or you could choose to go up the mountain, but we did not.
