Breakneck Point

Tips from the community

This trail gets extremely busy on the weekend, but if you can do it early or go on a weekday I highly recommend it. The trailhead is just past the tunnel under the mountain on the river side. It begins with a pretty vertical rock scramble that can be challenging but is super fun. We did bring our pup on this one and he had a great time, but we went a little longer than we should have and he did not like the rock scramble descent. Overall it was a great hike and the summit views are beautiful!

    One of the easiest ways to get out and enjoy nature is with a great hike! This list consists of some of my favorite trails in the lower Hudson Valley. From Anthony's Nose and Camp Smith to the Lemon Squeezer, there's something on this list for all levels. Plus, all of these hikes are within two hours from New York City. Don't have a car? No worries, some of these can even be accessed using Metro North!
