Great hike for the family. My kids love to scramble while I prefer a trail and there was plenty of both. Beautiful views and fun terrain.

great hike I parked on 9w and went went up Butler hill to the storm king mountain peak and back down. I've done this hike a few times and would suggest picking a weekday if you can it can get pretty crowded on weekends, especially in early summer and fall. Still a few cool place with lots of awesome veiws

This hike is great because it has lots of options.
We ended up parking at the yellow trail head on mountain road instead of 9W and doing the loop from there.
You can take the yellow trail to the blue/red trail and take the steeper route or take yellow the whole way for an easier route to the vistas.


We did this hike on a mid day whim with ease. you will break a sweat but won't be knee shakingly tired at the end

My first hike in NYC and I loved every minute. Such amazing views at every peak. I can't wait for my family to visit so I can go again!
