My first hike and it was a good one! I'm not in shape and found it to be just fine. Loved it! Great view & rest stops!

We started the path from the long trail which connects to The Devil's hiking route and other mountain trails. Long path is as the name suggests a pretty long trail but there isn't much elevation gain so overall it's a nice walk through the woods. Before getting to Codfish Point you will pass a rock quarry zone from the 1850s and an area on the left where people made their own furniture using the flat~rocks. Really creative! Then comes a shelter house and lastly (if you want to stop there) codfish point on the left, overlooking the Hudson River. There is a nice handmade stone bench where you can rest a bit and enjoy the view.
