State Line Lookout and the Palisades Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This is a scenic out-and-back hike that runs along the top of the Palisades Cliffs above the Hudson River. There’s a moderate descent and ascent on the Long Path, which uses old abandoned highways, former bridle paths, trails, and even steps to reach the State Line Boundary Monument and Station Rock. The hike provides one of the most magnificent views on the East Coast.
This walk begins at State Line Lookout, the lofty Palisades
aerie that gives you a spectacular close-up of Palisades geology and great views of the ever-busy Hudson River and of
Hastings-on-Hudson across the river. If you can momentarily take your eyes off the scenery, you can ponder the political boundary that gives this spot its name. The actual state line is 0.5 mile north of here."
