12 Short And Sweet Fall Hikes In New York With A Spectacular End View

Anyone who’s ever gone exploring in New York knows that there are many advantages to going hiking during our fall season. Not only will you get to enjoy the gorgeous colors of our foliage, but you also won’t have to deal with things like bugs and large crowds. While determined adventurers may be heading up to our High Peaks that feature longer, more strenuous trails, some of us are simply in search of shorter hikes that will give us equally rewarding views. Keeping things short and sweet, here are some of the best trails for you to take this season.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
