Hudson Highlands State Park Information
Hudson Highlands State Park is a large state park on the east side of the Hudson River in southern New York. The protected region covers more than 7,600 acres in two distinct sections, simply referred to as the North and South units. The northern area contains the popular Breakneck Ridge hike, as well as the tallest point in the park, Beacon Mountain. The southern sections protects over five miles of the long-distance Appalachian Trail, as well as shorter hikes, such as the Camp Smith Trail, which meets the former on top of a popular lookout known as Anthony’s Nose. Also included in this gallery is the historic Bear Mountain Bridge and photos taken from its walkways, doubling also as the Appalachian Trail.
