So here's the little secret...there are 2 trains on Saturday A.M. and 2 on Sunday A.M. from Grand Central that literally drop you off at the trail head (Breakneck Ridge - and it also stops at Manitou for those going to Bear Mountain). I've been hiking here since 2004 with my son (then 4, now 11). It's a fun time with great views. The best is to take the white trail and cross to the yellow or blue to go back to Cold Spring (where the trains run every hour). If you are a more experienced hiker, go to Beacon where you can also pass a fire tower (and it adds some length and additional elevation change to the hike). I went one year when it was wet - not recommended for any but the heartiest trekker. You can drive if you want (there is parking along 9D)
