Shaupeneak Ridge: Ridge Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A cornucopia of natural features makes this little trail a local gem. At 892 feet at its highest point, Shaupeneak Ridge tops the Marlboro Mountains for 25 miles from Newburgh to Kingston, giving the mountains an appearance that geologists call “hogbacked.”

The 936.5-acre Shaupeneak Ridge Cooperative Recreation Area is owned and managed by Scenic Hudson, the largest environmental group in the Hudson Valley. With the goal of connecting people with the Hudson River, the group has preserved nearly 40,000 acres to date throughout the region."
