Map: NY-NJ Trail Conference Map #102 (East Hudson Trails); Avenza mapping app or similar maps or apps From the northern end of the parking area, we will proceed north on the white-blazed Washburn Trail reaching the site of a quarry, opened in 1931 by the Hudson River Stone Corporation and abandoned in 1967. Here, the trail leaves the road and follows the rim of the quarry. The trail soon begins a steep ascent of Bull Hill, with views to the right over the Hudson River. The best viewpoint is from a rock outcrop at the point of a switchback to the right of the trail. After climbing another 400 vertical feet, the trail comes out on open rocks, with views over the Hudson River, Crows Nest Mountain, and the United States Military Academy at West Point. Continuing along the Washburn Trail, we will reach a rock outcrop just to the left of the trail that offers a broad view over the Hudson River. We soon reach the viewless summit of Bull Hill (also known as Mt. Taurus). The Washburn Trail begins to descend, with more views to the left. We will then turn left and continue on the blue-blazed Notch Trail. After passing a stone foundation on the left, the Notch Trail reaches Breakneck Brook. Here, we will turn left onto the red-blazed Brook Trail. We can take a short detour to visit the ruins of the Cornish dairy farm, visible on the right. We will continue south on the red-blazed Brook Trail. After passing a small abandoned concrete building and an old concrete dam on the right, we bear left here onto the blue-blazed Cornish Trail, which follows an old road through the former estate of Edward G. Cornish, who served as Chairman of the Board of the National Lead Company. Soon, the stone ruins of the Cornish mansion are visible below to the right. We continue along a footpath parallel to Route 9D for about a quarter of a mile to the parking area where the hike began. *****
