Hike The Hudson Valley

The white trail is easy and suitable for beginners but our personal favorite is the Storm King Mountain Orange trail because by reaching the top of the mountain you will be awestruck by the sweeping view of the Hudson River and the surrounding highlands.

The summit itself is very thrilling and is a good exercise due to extensive climbing and scrambling on the trails.
