Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This spectacular out-and back hike edges the Hudson River, one of the world’s major waterways. At the same time, the route travels below the massive Palisades Cliffs. A good portion of the hike traces old historic roads, while a short section runs atop a stone bulkhead (slippery when wet).

As you travel these old roads, imagine the sites as layers of
historic activities. Is your car parked where automobiles lined up to embark onto the John Walsh for passage to Yonkers? Or are you stepping aside for a farmer’s wagon loaded with fresh vegetables, heading for the docks so his produce can be loaded onto a Hudson River sloop bound for New York City (NYC), a sloop built by shipwrights on this site? Smell the oak and cedar!"
