Take the Metro to the Garrison stop. With your back to the train tracks walk to your right and you’ll see two stone pillars and a sign for “Arden Point – Hudson Highlands State Park.”

Fascinating hike with remains of old brick houses, an old monastery turned into a retreat site (garrison institute), and abandoned part of the monastery, Benedict Arnold's escape route, and amazing views of the Hudson from an historic overlook (including views of West Point). Forgot to mention the bamboo throughout the hike serving as a canopy for parts of the trail! And those old stone walls that served as property lines back in the day. All unexpected surprises!

Pretty views of the Hudson and a great lunch spot halfway. I've done this one twice. Love the bamboo forest too.

Easy walk, nice views at the end. Not for serious hikers by any means.

With two kids. Decent length. Large sections of Glenclyffe Loop unmarked, particularly around civilization.
