Intermediate-Strenuo­us Hike: Breakneck Ridge

  • Aug 5, 2011 · 9:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Terrain: Intermediate-Strenuous, not a beginner hike

Distance: 3 - 4 miles

Welcome: All experienced hikers

The views from Breakneck Ridge Rock Scramble are breathtaking.  Come join me for a great workout and beautiful hike.

IF YOU ARE AFRAID OF HEIGHTS THIS IS NOT FOR YOU. Hiking and Rock Scrambling are dangerous.

We do not charge for this event and we are not a professional group. You participate completely at your own risk. Please keep in mind that even though the distance sounds short, this hike is a workout! Lots of elevation, ups and downs. Meeting at the northernmost lot on 9D, just north of the tunnel.

Driving Directions: From Westchester: Taconic N., NY Rt. 301 W., 9D north Proceed north on N.Y. Route 9D for about 8.5 miles to the Village of Cold Spring. Continue ahead on Route 9D for another two miles past the intersection with N.Y. Route 301 in Cold Spring. Immediately after passing through a tunnel under Breakneck Ridge, there will be three parking areas on 9D - let's meet in the northernmost one. From NYC: take George Washington bridge to the Palisades Interstate Parkway Take the Palisades Interstate Parkway to its northern terminus at the Bear Mountain Bridge. Cross the bridge and proceed north on N.Y. Route 9D for about 8.5 miles to the Village of Cold Spring. Continue ahead on Route 9D for another two miles past the intersection with N.Y. Route 301 in Cold Spring. Immediately after passing through a tunnel under Breakneck Ridge, there will be three parking areas on 9D - let's try the northenmost one. Roughly 1 hour without traffic.

    Couldn't have been a more perfect day! Warm, not hot! Sunny and clear. A very calm Hudson River. Very few people on the mountain...basically to ourselves. And great company. Most excellent day!
