Overview

Meet us at 10:30 a.m. in Cold Spring to enjoy a beautiful autumn day hiking the Hudson Highlands. We will hike Bull Hill along trails featuring stunning views of the Hudson and surrounding mountains. We will start and end at our meeting spot near Cold Spring Depot Restaurant at the end of Main Street. We will hike at a brisk pace over a distance of 7-8 miles, including a walk from the meeting spot to the trailhead. The hike will include some steep hills on hiking trails in the woods and on rocky terrain and is therefore not suitable for beginners. Cumulative elevation gain will be approximately 1400-1600 feet. Hikers should wear hiking boots, have at least 2-3 quarts of water/sports drinks along with lunch, and be in good condition to complete a strenuous hike.
