Anthony’s Nose Ascent Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"It’s not all uphill at Anthony’s Nose—it only feels that way for much of the hike. The payoff for this strenuous out-and-back’s double ascent is an extended passage through an eyefetching series of granite uplift and dramatic outcroppings, as well as one of the most striking vantage points along the entire Hudson River.
The first part of this hike follows yellow blazes along the dirt road by the kiosk. It is usually possible to drive a mile farther to a different parking lot, one that is closer to
Deer Park Pond, but we suggest you walk this stretch. It is attractively overgrown by cedar, maple, flowering dogwood, oak, apple, and tulip trees, with a lowland swamp below the
road’s right shoulder."
