People tend to check in during these times:
Short and steep uphill, long downhill, river views, train access
The hike is great
Great place to hike. Do the rock scrambling trail!
Lots of incline but the view is well worth it!
Great views of the Hudson!
Great hike to watch Sunset!
THE BEST hiking in the NYC vicinity. Take the metro north train from grand central, but come prepared with food and water! The train stop has none of it. Continue on to beacon tower!
CRAY INCLINE but great, worth it:
Lots of climbing. Getting up was not a problem but going down was a challenge. We followed the red trail down but then all of a sudden disappeared? No marks and ended up off the trail. Be aware
Amazing hike but be prepared for a serious workout to get up here
Do not underestimate the ridge... do not bring young children or elderly relatives. They cannot manage the ascent.
Great hike! But beware, if you're thinking it'll be easy to get a taxi or hitch a ride to Cold Spring, guess again.
Best day hike in the NYC area!
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.
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
