The best fall foliage viewing in the lower Hudson Valley is during the last two weeks in October, so lets hope for some nice colors. On this hike we will also see many Hudson River views on the Arden Point and Glenclyffe loop trails by the river, which face West Point on the other side, and also have a nice climb up to Sugarloaf Hill, where we will see lots of cactus on the summit, as well as a small bamboo forest on the trail. We should have plenty of time afterwards to relax on the historic Garrison Landing by the river and visit the Garrison Art Center. Another treat on the Landing is the newly opened Dolly's Restaurant and Cafe (named after the Hello Dolly movie which was filmed here), offering gourmet food and deserts. Our hike begins right from the train station, where we proceed to walk along the trails to the scenic Arden Point. From there we hike along the ridge on the Sugarloaf trail, and ascend the mountain for our scenic lunch spot. On the way back to the train station, we hike along trails on the Glenclyffe loop, which has a few gazebos and benches to enjoy the scenery. Trains along the scenic Hudson Line return to Manhattan at least hourly. We will hike at a steady, intermediate (not fast, but definitely not slow) pace over a distance of 7 miles, with some steep hills on hiking trails with varied terrain. Cumulative elevation gain will be approximately 1400 feet. There are no special skills or equipment required, other than to wear hiking boots, and have at 2 quarts of water/sports drinks along with lunch. However, hikers should be in good condition to complete a fairly strenuous hike (Per AMC policy, please no dogs, unless indicated otherwise). Rain or even questionable forecast may cancel or modify; check Meetup website for latest updates. We meet at 10 AM in the Garrison train station parking lot. The transportation information for both public transportation leaving from Grand Central and cars (AMC Trans code: 5C on the AMC New York-North Jersey website) is indicated below.
