Mount Beacon Park

Don’t let the word, “park,” fool you. Every daunting and ever-rewarding – the notorious Mt. Beacon is for the the experienced hiker – or at least the moderately fit adult. You’ll want your hands to be free so that you can support your climb and catch your fall, but most of all to take photos overlooking the Hudson River.

Visit Scenic Hudson and NY/ NJ Trail Conference for trail maps and more information.
