With hikes of all types and difficulties from lower Westchester County to the Shawangunks, 50 Hikes in the Lower Hudson Valley has something for hikers of every experience level. Each hike provides a difficulty rating, approximate walking time, distance, elevation gain, maps, and trailhead GPS coordinates outlined at the beginning of the chapter, and provides tips and suggestions for getting to the trail, resting, and observing views throughout the hike. Whether you are heading to the nature center and wildflower sanctuary at Teatown Lake Reservation, trekking through dense woods and observing interesting boulders on the Breakneck Mountain Loop, or taking in the spectacular views of mighty Storm King, 50 Hikes in the Lower Hudson Valley is the ideal guide for you.
This latest edition by Trail Conference volunteer Daniel Chazin includes 14 new hikes in the Lower Hudson Valley, replacing hikes in previous editions that were located further north in the Catskills and Upper Hudson Valley. Additional updates and changes have been made, and in some cases, previous hikes have been essentially rewritten due to signficant trail system changes.
