Cool trail with a great veiw from the top. Slightly less crowded then breakneck ridge but it still draws a crowd. The estate ruins are a cool spot to explore. Took us a little longer than expected , also right by little stony point which is a great spot to stop by after to take in some veiws from the beach .
Nice trail with some very nice viewpoints above the Hudson. Goes up quite steep and dusty on a rocky path for the first third, then more moderate through forest. Took us around 3.5 hrs to walk the loop - first white, then blue, then red, then blue again.
Great hike. Make sure to grab the trail map at the beginning if the trail!
Really like this trial ! Such nice & clear day, I saw Manhattan from the top of mountain. There are great view and so many interesting spots. I will go back again.
Awesome hike on Washburn Trail. Difficult and steep at times, but doable, even as an beginner/intermediate hiker.
Nice quick hike, and the ruins are awesome to see. We didn't do the entire loop, but when entering from the 9D side it's mostly a paved trail.
first 2 miles are pretty steep smooth sailing after that
First 2 miles of Washburn are steep incline with a lot of rock scrambling. It's great moderate hike and amazing views of Hudson River and NYC.
Awesome place to hike! It's an easy to moderate walk! This place has history and amazing views definitely worth the trip!!
Great hiking area! The Cornish trail itself seemed to be a different one though. It's more a line than a loop, so based on the recommendations of the ranger, we took an combination of trails taking us to the mountain ridge with amazing views of the Hudson en a variety of sceneries.
Love the ruins!
We went hiking up the white trail, connected to blue, trekked on red for a bit, and picked blue back up towards the parking lot. It happened to be one of the hottest days of the summer, but I needed a practice run with my pack for a longer trip in the Adirondacks. The views up the white trail were amazing and worth the trouble. Mt. Taurus or bull hill is the top. You could do the loop in reverse which has an easier incline up, but still get the same views. The Cornish estate ruins were a nice stopping place as well. It took us 4.5 hours. On this day we each went through 60 oz of water and needed mosquito protection.
great hike for a day.. vertical rise at start with soft walk back. great views. nice round .. nice day
We love hiking this trail. Take White up first for a nice steep climb then meander back down Cornish, stopping to explore the ruins. Great for dogs. Ice cream at Cold Spring on the way home.
Love this trail, especially during the summer and fall. Very easy access from the train station in Cold Spring, about three quarters of a mile. I have hiked there quite a few times. It's definitely at least 7 miles, if you start from the parking next to route 9D across from Little Stony Point and take it up to Bull Hill/Mt Taurus. In fact, the more apt name for the trail should be Bull Hill or Mt. Taurus. Do watch out for the flies in April end. Supposedly, a couple of weeks in the year, mountains are infested with them, and for this hike last week of April is not the time to go.
Very good hike start off on the Washburn white trail so go right when you start the trail bring bug spray with you and lots of water it's a steep like at the beginning like breakneck ridge , when you get to the yellow trail make a left to continue on the loop do not make a right unless your heading back to town itself (cold spring ) so after you make that left Continue until you see a crossing of the blue or red trail. You can take either to the Cornish estate trail both will lead you to the same area of the old mansion. But when you get to the burned down mansion make sure you find the blue trail to get back to the parking lot. Red trail takes you towards breakneck . Blue trail takes you to the parking lot across from the little stony point park opening that's where you should park to do the Cornish estate trail. Hope this helps
