Fishkill Ridge in Hudson Highlands State Park

Open daily, sunrise to sunset

Fishkill ridge offers challenging hiking over 600 acres and about 6 miles of trails with scenic views (if you plan & persevere!), and the best of birding (eagles, hawks & more!). Bring your dogs and keep an eye out for mountain bikers in the spring and deep snow in the winter. The potential for precarious footing and steep topography mean that this trail is not for the novice hiker. Located near Mount Beacon State Park, Fishkill Ridge is protected by The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation in order to preserve natural habitats and to allow for community enjoyment. You may even spot the 1945 airplane wreck on your trek where 6 Navy veterans lost their lives. As always print out or take along a map in the case that you lose cell reception.

Plum Point, Kowawese Unique Area in New Windsor, NY

Plum Point offers gorgeous views of the Hudson River including Bannerman Island and features water-side seating and photo opps with benches and a gazebo. The sandy landing allows for boat launching, fishing, chilling and wading. Explore the hiking trails with your pooch. While no swimming is allowed, locals will tell you to check the times of the tides so that you can walk out towards the center of the river at low tide. (I do not condone this.)

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.
