Hiking along the Hudson RiverWalking along the Hudson River
Descend the driveway from there, go up Hudson Terrace to the northern side and up the metal staircase to the forest to the northern side of the George Washington Bridge. The route leads outside Allison Park, across Dyckman Hill Road, through Rockefeller Lookout, along Greenbrook Sanctuary, through Alpine Lookout, through Park Headquarters, Women's Federation Monument, State Line Lookout, NY/NJ Border Monument and on to U.S. Route 9W and the entry to Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.
Situated outside the Visitor Center in Fort Lee Historic Parc is the southerly head of the River Lakeshore Path. Then descend the main path next to Hudson Terrace southwards to the Edgewater Parks entry, descend to Hudson River, then head due North along Hudson River along Hudson River to Hazard's Dock, through the Ross Dock Picnic Area, Englewood Picnic Area,
At Kearney House, finally over the Giant Stairs and on to Peanut Leap Cascade, where it climbs back to the clifftop just off the New York-New Jersey State Line, its northerly trail head at the intersection with the Longath.
Apart from the giant steps and the climb to the Trailkopf in the North the route is light to medium-difficult ground. There are six tracks on the State Line Lookout, signposted A - F, which can also be used by walkers (click to load a map). Walkers can print our full leaflet for a full version of the site, but for portable or home printer users it may be more comfortable to have one or more of the following charts presented from head to toe in the site and a second page with basic walkers' guides and advice.
Excursions can be done in two or less hour by walkers with little or no hiking experiences, even school-age schoolchildren. Elderly and adult kids should be in good health and relatively secure in their migratory skills. Demanding walks are better for walkers with true hiking experiences.
Elderly kids and grown-ups should be in good form and should be able to rely on their hiking skills. Please click here to view a walking tour guide starting and ending in Fort Lee Historic Park.
