This hike to Anthony’s Nose is a steep and strenuous, but relatively short scramble with a great payoff view. This unofficial but well-marked trail was previously the Appalachian Trail, which has since been relocated slightly to the north.
Hudson Highlands State Park
Breakneck Ridge is an incredibly popular hike so don’t expect to get the trail to yourself. The steep rock scramble ascent will get your heart pumping quickly and you’ll be rewarded with great views of the Hudson River. It’s about a 3 mile loop, but all the action is in the first mile.
