We will meet at Castle Rock in Garrison and hike to Sugarloaf then take the Osborn loop to the AT and hike to Anthony's Nose. A good hike with a little distance (about 12 miles). Views from Sugarloaf and Anthonys nose are fantastic! Lunch on Anthonys nose and return to Castle Rock.

We'll meet at the parking lot at the Castle Rock Unique Area. The address for a is Wing and Wing Road, Phillipstown, NY.  For those with a GPS, the Parking Lot is located at[masked],[masked] ---- N[masked] W 73 56.699.  

From the North, about .5 mile south of the intersection of Route 403 and 9D in Garrison, make a left turn at a wooden sign that says "Castle Rock Unique Area." The intersection is also marked by a street sign "Wing & Wing." Pass through a gate with two square pillars, and bear left at the fork in the road. Continue past a red barn on the right to a gravel parking area. 

From the South, about 3-4 miles north of the Bear Mountain Bridge on 9D in Garrison, make a right turn at a wooden sign that says "Castle Rock Unique Area." The intersection is also marked by a street sign "Wing & Wing." Pass through a gate with two square pillars, and bear left at the fork in the road. Continue past a red barn on the right to a gravel parking area. 

On public transportation, from Grand Central Station, take the Hudson line of the MTA Metro-North railroad to the Garrison Train Station. From there, it is a .9 mile hike to the parking lot.  A trail leads from the southern end of the parking lot of the Garrison train station to the parking lot of the hike at Castle Point Unique Area.  Download a map before you leave home so you don't get lost.

    Everyone, I am still leading the hike and still willing to pickup at the Garrison station. Just respond to the email i've sent letting me know you are taking the train. I already have 2 confirmed plus 1 tentative guest, so there is still room in my car for 1, possibly 2 more people; just let me know. If you do not have a GPS and still wish to drive to the Garrsion Station, I will be there waiting. If you are running late for whatever reason, please contact the numbers listed above.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
