Hometown Hangout

My parents grew up hanging out on this bridge and some of my fondest memories were made on this bridge.

I hike to push my limits both mentally and physically, take in the beauty of the great outdoors, and just to get away from it all. Every chance I get you will find me in the mountains, on a kayak or ending my day by the campfire!

Hike the North Point Loop

New York / Butter Hill Trailhead

There is three different trailheads to access the North Point Loop.  I chose the trailhead that would give me the longest hike.  That would be the Butter Hill parking area on Route 9W north.

Hike the Cornish/Brook/Notch/Washburn/Undercliff Loop

New York / Washburn Trailhead

This loop is a great option to avoid crowds on the west side of the Washburn trail.  Start at the same trailhead for the Washburn Trail.

Hike the Washburn/Nelsonville/Undercliff Loop

This is a difficult loop hike that has several different starting points.  I chose to start at the Washburn Trail Head, which is the lowest starting point you can select.
