It walked the "Overlook Trail" which is 1.75 miles and probably a climb of about 7 to 800 feet, so one has to be fairly fit. The view at the top is quite spectacular. Make sure you bring a bottle of water as I didn't...More

My husband and I have been traveling up to the Fishkill and Newburgh, NY area for years and have never explored the region much until our last trip, 11/11-11/13/16. With a little Google searching for hiking I found Fishkill Ridge. We are so happy we...More

The parking is easy to find via GPS just past 36 Sunnyside Road. I recommend this hike for people who are fit. I wouldn't bring children under 10 years old as there are plenty of lose rocks and it is steep!

Hot/humid but that can't be helped! Pathways are very well marked & used; nice! For us, we were there at a FAB time for viewing mushrooms & fungi, unbeknownst to us prior! Superb.

Trail well marked and maintained. Great views at the summit, this hike can be linked to other trails in the area for a all day adventure.

There are many hours of trails in this area and we trekked through at least 6 of them. Beautiful, almost untouched trails through dense woods and mountain ridges...just be athletic and ready to sweat. Head up to the reservoir for a picnic lunch--it's very pretty.
