People tend to check in during these times:
Beginning of the hike involves climbing a wall of boulders (don't bring a dog), and remember to look back at the scenic views as you climb! A Metro North to Breakneck Ridge is available on weekends.
Great day hike. Take the route to Cold Spring and have dinner there. The train leaves from there too.
beautiful trails and uphill rock climbing.
The flag pole is great for pictures and all, but don't be deceived. You still have a ways to go. Bring at least 1.5L of water for the standard loop trail
Breathtaking views, get to the top - worth the climb.
Metro station often does not stop at the breakneck station, so watch out. Get off at Cold Springs of that's the case, because a cab ride from Beacon will cost you $20 for a 5 mile ride.
It was a serious challenge to me a beginner (:
Built a snowman yesterday.
Park (4 cars) at the pull-off on the west side of Route 9d, just beyond the Breakneck Tunnel
Breakneck Ridge is one of North America's most popular hiking trails. On a clear sunny day you can see the New York City skyline, so keep an eye out!
Check out the abandoned house near the end of the blue route
steep initial climb is worth it for the amazing views and fun rock scrambling oppurtunties. metro north train from nyc will let you off near the trailhead.
Careful of the raspberry bushes, ha!
Great rocky steep climb with fabulous views from the top
