We discovered this on the HiketheHudsonValley web site, and it looked interesting, so we decided to give it a go on a fine May morning (and afternoon). Hiking up from the east, you get to see sweeping vistas of the Hudson Valley: really nice views....More
I am a little biased since I live near this mountain and hike it one a week. I am also a little reluctant to give it too much praise lest everyone and there mother decides to visit. However, this mountain is has so much too...More
We hiked the 6+ mile round trip up and down the mountain. The hiking directions on hikethehudson website are good, but still it can be easy to lose track of the right way sometimes.
This trail is not for beginners, and even for us seasoned...More
The Schunnemunk Ridge is a huge mass of rock sticking up out of the eastern Moodna Creek valley. Several trails cross the length and breadth of the ridge. The Jessup trail runs along the ridge north to south. The high point is some 1600' with...More
My husband and I came here to hike. As usual, we looked up hikes on the 'Hike The Hudson Valley' website, which in my opinion is the best, most accurate, well described trail guide for the Hudson Valley. We followed a hike that started on...More
If you're looking for a nice place to hike on a weekend, Schunnemunk State Park is about 90 minutes north of NYC. Take exit 16 off the Thruway and head north on Route 32. It's beautiful in Autumn, and the trails are not too challenging....More
Spectacular views of the Hudson Valley! The hike is strenuous and can take a lot longer then 3 hours. The day I went I didn't finish because it started to rain but I am planning on going back soon. This truly a hike you will...More

Congratulations on your son's new job! The hike up Schunnemunk is very nice, about 7 mile round trip with maybe 1600ft of total ascent. Probably not very hard compared to the hikes you might be used to in CO, but you'll still want to make sure to bring enough food and water. You can find a detailed description of the hike on the "hikethehudsonvalley" site (just google it). The Storm King hike, also in the area is nice too, a little less strenuous, but with some great views of the Hudson river. There are many other nice hikes in the Hudson Valley, as you'll see if you check out web site above (bear Mountain also has some nice hikes, and is maybe a little closer). As for dining options, I'm less familiar with the choices over in that area. Cornwall is rather nice though, you could probably find something over there (there seem to be some good options on TripAdvisor). Have fun!
