    Download map app Avenza bc IT IS possible to get lost aka go on a longer hike deeper into not ever going home😳

    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.

    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.

    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!

    The first part of the hike is the hardest... be prepared for some climbing! Read more

    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!

    Expect some hand-over-hand rock scrambles and wear boots that protect ankles. High winds and rain increase risk of the rocky ascent. Read more · January 21, 2011

    If the climb doesn't take your breathe away, wait till you see the views! Read more
