“One of the most underrated trails in Hudson Highland State Park; not to be missed!”— John Maurizi
There are several social paths that lead away from the trail. Many people get confused here. After the trail climbs up to this viewpoint, it makes an abrupt turn back and descends again before climbing back up the side of the mountain. It is not well-marked here so take your time to find the right way.
The northwestern section of the Undercliff Trail, once you cross over the Washburn Trail, is seldom visited as most people either hike the Washburn Trail or Breakneck Ridge Trail. This section connects the Washburn Trail and the Brook Trail. The trail has some of the best viewpoints of West Point and Storm King Mountain across the Hudson River. This trail sees little traffic and is very enjoyable. This trail is often done as part of a loop starting from the Cornish Trail.
