Enjoy the Hudson River like never before.  Relax at a natural sand beach while looking across at the spectacular cliffs rising high above.

After turning on Northwoods Club Road you will drive 7.0 miles.  The trail head will be on your left marked with a brown sign.  You can park on either side of the road.

The trail starts off over a foot bridge.  A few steps will lead you to the register on your right.  After signing in you will soon reach Huntley Pond.  The trail skirts along the shore of the pond for a bit.  As the trail veers away from the pond it continues on mostly gentle terrain (a few ups and downs).  You will eventually hear the river and drop about 300 vertical feet.  

Once at the river you will see the spectacular ledges across it.  There is also a natural sand beach where you can take a dip.  Use caution especially if the river is high. If you stay awhile in the warmer months its very possible you may see a whitewater paddler.

Once you are ready retrace your steps back to the trail head.
