This route to the wonderful scenic lookout on Anthony’s Nose is gentler than the classic route from the north.
The terrain is the star on this mostly moderate hike over Schunemunk’s two ridges. This long, challenging route includes the base of Moodna Viaduct, The Megaliths, and excellent views.
Storm King Mountain from Cornwall-on-Hudson has better parking and quieter trails — and you still get all the same incredible views.
Super scenic and super sketchy — this is the funnest and most popular day hike in New York’s Hudson Highlands.
