Alternate way to getting down to the beach. More woodsy than walking down the paved path.

Awesome hike

If you hate sand, this is the beach for you. A lot of lost elevation for rocky paved gravel. Well manicured coastline. Beautiful in a different way. Switchbacks are good for hills training.

I would recommend this trail. the lower lot was closed so we parked on top of the hill on the plateau. You can take the road down if you have a stroller or walk down the path thru the woods to get to the beach area. once by water there is a nice flat path that goes for a while. I had my pregnant wife, 1 year old and small dog so we only went about 1.2 miles before turning around but the trail kept on going. Several benches and picnic tables along the path as well to stop and rest or just take in the view. Great for pets, strollers, walks, or runs. Path itself is flat but you can take the path up to the plateau to get some Hill action.

Short easy trail up the side of the hill, takes you from Nyack Beach river walk (starts by the picnic table just north of parking lot) up to the plateau / upper parking area (not heavily used). On the plateau, glimpses through the trees of the Tappan-Zee bridge and Hudson, and large field with picturesque upper cliffs of Hook Mountain State park rising right up.
