When you book a getaway, what do you look forward to the most? New dining options? Shopping? Exploring new places? With the autumn season in full swing, there is no better way to experience the beauty of fall by getting outdoors! Today we’ve got some leaf peeping information for you! There are stellar views to be found in the Hudson Highlands State Park.
We are so fortunate to have such incredible beauty right outside the front door of our bed and breakfast. Being close to nature and so many activities is just one reason we are an award-winning bed and breakfast in the Hudson Valley area. The Hudson Highlands State Park is located on the east side of the Hudson River and runs from Peekskill in Westchester County to Beacon in Dutchess County. It offers 8,000 acres full of trails to explore…over 50 in fact! You’ll find birds to watch and all kinds of animal activity to keep an eye out for.
Guests come here for hiking, fishing, boating and birding. The Hudson Highlands provide such a stunning backdrop you’ll want to bring your camera for some one-of-a-kind photo ops. The trail network offered here varies from easy to challenging so people of all ages and abilities will enjoy their time here. You can take a 1.30-mile walk or a 10.3-mile hike and go from 9 all the way up to 1,601 feet above sea level. The park’s most well-known trail is Breakneck Ridge and was rated by Newsweek as one of the top 10 day hikes in America. There are several ways to enter the park so download a map before you go.
After a day of leaf peeping and hiking, fill up at the Birdsall House in Peekskill. Offering on-tap microbrews, locally sourced American fare, and a beer garden, this gastropub is a popular local restaurant.
Don’t let time get away! We can all get so wrapped up in the busyness of life and the “important” to-dos and only find we miss out on life’s most important moments! Book your fall getaway online today and contact us anytime for more information.
