  • This location is shown only to members

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.

    Hi. This is my first hike with the group and long hike. I didn't see it in the description but what do most people bring for the day? Someone who hikes suggested 2L water, a few snacks. Would appreciate some input. And I was told cotton is bad to hike in. Suggestions? Thanks.

    May 2, 2014

    • David K.

      2L of water, lunch and snacks. It may be muddy, so boots are preferred over sneakers. Dress in layers. Avoid cotton if you can. Poly is best. This time of year, its not the end of the world if you wear cotton.
