A Mysterious Woodland Trail In New York Will Take You To Railway Station Ruins

It can be hard to find motivation to get out and hit the trails. You know it’s good for you, but sometimes, an afternoon on the couch with Netflix just sounds like more fun. One trail that is most definitely worth the effort is Mount Beacon Park’s red trail. This is not an easy trail: it’s a nearly 4-mile out-and-back trail with over 1,300 feet in elevation gain. But the amazing views make this one of the best hikes in New York. The Empire State has incredible natural beauty and extensive history: this stunning trail will show you both!

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
