Great views , beach at the bottom of the trail. Doggy loved it
It's a nice hike to Hudson River, but that's it. The hike is moderate. It was a hot day so may be if weather was nicer, would have liked more. There are picnic spots and barbecue places by the River.
Always a great workout the dogs love it
NIce hike and not too difficult, we made it on the reverse, and it is good to start without the noise of the nearby highway. Shady and quiet, nice views on the Hudson, very convenient with the bus from NY George Washington Station (20 min ride) or from 42nd St. You can also find secluded places by the river to relax and enjoy. Near the small castle, you can have your sandwich. It was last week, in a very hot day, but I'd do that again!
