If you're tired of the crowded conditions on the southern section of Breakneck Ridge Trail, try this loop, which, once you're past the Breakneck Bypass Trail, has considerably less traffic. In addition to the "usual" stupendous views while rock-scrambling on Breakneck Ridge itself, there's great views from Sugarloaf.

Several outlooks over the Hudson from different points along the trail. At a brisk pace, I completed this in 3 hours. Good workout.

Great hike - lots of variety; long parts of the trail are super-rocky, but plenty of spots for great views! Took us 4 hours start to finish.

We started on the trail early morning, around 8.30am; it was still very foggy outside. After two days of rain, the path was quite muddy and the two streams, we passed on our way, were running high. At the intersection, where the actual loop starts, we took the path on the right (red circle) while the yellow circle, coming from the Sugarloaf mountain , we left it for our return. The trail was quite empty. By the time we cleared the forest, the fog cleared also and all the vistas of Hudson and surrounding mountains were quite nice. We recorded the whole trail and it is actually 6.2 miles long. We enjoyed the trail and the fact that it was well maintained.

Wonderful hiking, with best views of the Hudson from sugarloaf mountain

Clean and very peaceful.Thanks all trails

Great views, dog friendly and barely trafficked on a humid day!

Lightly trafficked route compared to breakneck ridge proper trail, but same stunning views.

Good elevation gain and great views.. I like it

Freedom Trail has been cleared. Trees and thorny growth. Nice pleasant hike or run.

Nice local walk. Not technical. You can do 6+ miles if you do both trails at once. The trails are connected.

Easily accessible, flat but some spots overgrown. If you have an hour to burn its well worth it to check it out.
