Spent Presidents' Day waking this trail with kids, 7 & 11. Beautiful walk. Melting snow and sunny sky. Perfect loop with kids to just get fresh air and quiet.
Beautiful autumn foliage but covers the trail and makes for a slippery climb and descent. Great hike for groups. Lots of big rocks for climbing. The summit is a nice view. There is a beautiful lake and picnic area at the parking lot level. Good for dogs. Would rate intermediate difficulty in fall with leaves on ground. Likely easier in summer or spring.
Great spot with varying features to play on. It's size makes it a spot to ride frequently, always something new to find.
As a Peekskill resident, Blue Mountain Reservation is a fun escape from the noises of the city and pace of modern life. I've hiked many of the trails and they can be a bit rocky. There are Mt Bikers, runners, and sometimes horses too. There is Verizon LTE for just about all of the park and Google Maps can guide you with a trail map otherwise the trail junction numbers are nonexistent. Blue Mountain has a nice view from the top and is an easy hike following the blue trail from the back parking lot.
