Part 1 follows Long Path teal blazes through forest over rocky and steep terrain. There are several scenic overlooks of the Hudson River. Teal blazes were easy enough to find while running, but it was not possible to run the entire part 1 due to rocks and steep drops at times. I saw lots of deer and some birds. When you see white blazes, part 2 begins. The white blazes take you through forest to Midland Ave. Make your way east to the River over roads for a short distance. Part 3 is on the multi-use path next to the Hudson River, which you pick up at Nyack Beach. There is a big climb on road back up to start.
