  • There are a number of interesting hikes using the parking lot here as a base. This one is relatively easy but rewarding for a longer hike. This hike offers an easy loop on pleasant woods roads and pat...  more »
  • A must stop on the Palisades. The views are awesome - overlooking the Hudson and birding is fantastic. The State Line Cafe is a great place for a bite and a pit stop. 
  • Stopped by for a quick visit and picnic on a beautiful autumn day. The place was so crowded! The bird watchers were everywhere. They told us they were watching a falcon on its perch but we never saw i...  more »
  • I come here to hike a the giants stairs all the time. The view is just suburbs of the city, nothing special. But there's a good 2 hour hike to be had. If you're doing the giant stairs loop, do yourself a favor and go down the stairs first. Otherwise you'll be climbing those stairs at the end of your hike. The climb from the New York side is gentler. And get a burger from the snack bar, they're good.
  • Great look out. Shady trees and benches to enjoy a nice cuppa. A small store is also present to grab some cookies and coffee
  • We enjoyed beauty of fall here. There are walking trails too.
  • This place is nearly at the end of the state park and probably the highest spot in the park. It's basically a scenic lookout with some trails although the trails don't look simple. You can walk a long stretch here but some trails come very close to the road which you need to be careful with. We could not explore the shore side trails but did the view point only. The only sad part is the non availability of toilets anywhere near by except for the cafe.
  • Great park with a range of trails and walks. I love the old school concession lodge.
