    Sunday, August 19, 2012.

    Named by Newsweek as one of the most complete hikes on the east coast, Breakneck Ridge is only an hour and half on the Metro North near the town of Cold Spring. I went there with five other friends and spent a few hours exploring the trail and diverging along a few others. The weather condition was ideal as was the size of people hiking that day. Although it was a Sunday, we saw a fairly lower number than I had expected.

    We hiked up from the North face above the tunnel and then diverted on towards the right side of the ridge to the town of Cold Spring instead of making the whole loop.

    Prepare for an intense start scrambling up the rocky hill, but the view from the top is worth it. Do NOT risk the climb if it is rainy because with the steep ascent and eventual descents, it does get very slippery and often times dangerously so.

    Often, nature is spoiled by too much human intrusion. My friends and I filled up a couple plastic bags with trash that we picked up along the way. If you do plan to hike here or anywhere else for that matter, please make sure you leave the place for others to enjoy as well.

    Here are a few videos I posted on my YouTube page:
