Nice easy stroll past the Stewart Memorial Shelter to a view at Mt. Egbert of Fishkill and the Hudson Highlands in the distance. It would be a great hike to do with kids, because it's short, not strenuous, and has one nice payoff. A bit muddy in places after some rain but in other areas you are walking across the top of ledge. After the view, the trail heads steeply downhill so I went no further.

Nice moderate hike to a sweet clear overlook...Morgan Stewart Memorial Shelter is also on this route. Look forward to heading back to this trail when it's not raining
