Easy bike trail with good views. Note the bike trail running along the Hudson shore is different from the Nyack hiking trail that goes up the mountain and where bikes are not allowed. The trailhead for the bike trail is at the nyack beach state park, with parking available for a nominal fee
Beautiful views of the Hudson. There's a good size parking lot. Trails are gravel or dirt and are good for walking and jogging. You can go to more moderate hiking trails from the main path if you want.
So, this is a 5 mile path, there are parts that are paved and others are gravel. I wouldn't consider this moderate skill, however, there are other paths you can take which will take it up to moderate level. Overall nice experience, as you travel with the cliffs on one side and the Hudson River on the other.
Did a 5 mile hike today, with my wife and three kids(10, 8, 7). Kid had a great time. Fun trail good views Definitely will do it again
I've grown up hiking this trail and the other review doesn't do it justice. It has its flaws but all in all is a beautiful hike and easy if you don't have that much time. It's also good for any age but still challenging.
I hiked this trail today because it was close to the city. The noise from 9W was clear even on the top of Hook Mountain. The trail needs to be cleaned, there was a lot of trash: plastic bottles, paper, tissue etc. Trail is well marked and well travelled. There were several fire pits scarring the summit. 360 view at the top is nice but the the front country is still too obvious with buildings, roads and even the Freedom Tower viewable in the distance on a clear day.
