Just a minute off the Palisades Interstate Parkway. Beautiful views of the Hudson River and New York. In spring and fall migration seasons, you will see many raptors migrating along the river.

Great hike for families but beware of the steep hike near the edge on the mountain because it is not fenced in. Little kids can fall in a blink of your eye. But for adults, it is a retreat especially in the fall.
