Breakneck Ridge Hike 2009

The Views: Spectacular. Rocky crags with no trees allow for unfettered vistas up and down the valley. Hawks fly at eye level. So do planes cruising down the valley. Here you can get a view of just how busy the river can be with barge traffic, cruise boats and jet skis.
Storm King Mountain is directly across the river. West Point to the south and Newburgh Bridge to the north.

Granite blasted from the sides of this mountain has been used to build the Brooklyn Bridge, West Point and the front steps of the capitol building in Albany. The scars to the mountain are clearly visible.
The Hike:
We will depart from Grand Central for a 75 minute ride north to the Breakneck Ridge Metro North Station.  Taking the "white" trail from the Metro North Station, the trail goes straight up as you climb over rocks. You'll need all four appendages to grasp and pull yourself up the first phase of the mountain. It takes about half an hour to reach the first of several lookout plateaus.  Upon reaching the summit, we will stop for lunch and then continue back down the backside of the mountain and hike back one stop to the Cold Spring Metro North Station in the center of the Historic Town of Cold Spring.  Total hike distance is appx. 5 miles.  We will have plenty of stops for water and snacks as needed.
What to Bring:
Camera as well as a small backpack to hold a bag lunch and snacks for the trail, as well as water(about a liter should be plenty).  A good pair of comfortable athletic shoes (Hiking boots aren't necessary but are a definate plus if you have them).  Dress in layers, it may be a bit cool this time of year but you will find that you will heat up quickly.

The Cost: $35 before 3/23  $60 after (includes round trip Metro North Ticket)  RAIN DATE 4/12/2008
