This is an awesome climb! The best views and workout you could get in just 1/2 mile!

nefarious_1_Great Hudson Valley hike


Probably my favorite Hudson Valley hike. A nice scramble and wonderful views. If you're in the area, this is the hike to take!

JRaphaelsonRoute Climbed: Breaknick Ridge Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2011


Great climbing to start, and shortly thereafter rewarded by spectacular views of the Hudson River. But that's about it. The trail afterwards is quite uneventful aside from a nice view or two.

ChinigoGreat climb  Sucess!


I did this with a group of friends. It is probably the best scramble in the area. I went up the Breakneck Ridge Trail, but down by the Bypass and Wilkinson.

Really great hike with my son and grandfather- we did the loop and it was nice and steep with fun Class 3 scrambling. I came for a visit from the west and have done hundreds of peaks above 10,000 feet, so I had low expectations. But I was really pleasantly surprised!

My first Highlands trip. When we made it a mile in the first hour I was like, enough! We'll never get through 8 more! But we did and the climb and the views were great.

Great hike. Saw a copperhead on the way up. Be careful out there! Between the timber rattlers in the area and those you have to watch where you step.

Did a nice loop going up Breakneck Ridge, over to Bull Hill and down. Weather was pleasant, partly cloudy and warm.

Have done most of the routes on Breakneck numerous times. My favorite is still Breakneck (W) to Mount Beacon. Still have yet to see a rattler.

This is my favorite scramble in the area. It can be made more "interesting" by veering off to the right or left of the trail.

One of my favorite hikes in SE NY. Amazing overlooks of the Hudson with some fun scrambling.

Date Climbed: May 20, 2007


Hiked Breakneck again with sons Mark and Matt and a our friend Moe. Drizzle and showers in the morning cleared into a beautiful day! This hike is so much fun would love to do it again but will be moving to Maryland in a few weeks. Check out my trip report for pics of the Rattlesnake we saw!
