United States New York Beacon

Mount Beacon Fire Tower

Tips from the community

Part of the Hudson Highlands State Park, there are miles and miles of trails here. I love Mount Beacon because it features some archaeological remains of an old casino, some hollowed out old car bodies that ended up there, and the old winch and rails that used to transport people and cars up the hill. Beware it does start out steep with a lot of stairs, but the views are worth it. If you make your way to the fire tower I recommend you making the climb to the top, just make sure its not a windy day like when I was there!

    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!
