This is probably the best trail for the Hudson Highland Preserve. Starts off with the super fun rock scrambling & a good amount of walking in between (in the woods). I did this trail when it was 97 degrees and it felt like mid 70 to low 80 because of the woods. And you end off at Fire Tower & after that it’s simple descent. Super rewarding and underrated trail as most people do the breakneck trail and will definitely do this trail many times again.

Made it a loop. White trail all the way to Firetower, Red to Beacon and back to the Yellow trail down to the parking lot at Breakneck.
