We love OutdoorFest, and we love this trail. However, not many people are aware of it, or how far it stretches. Imagine hopping off the subway, and picking up a trail that leads you through the Palisades, Hudson highlands, the Shawangunks, Catskills, and the Helderberg Escarpment. A trail lined with layers, upon layers of history. Designed as a New York's long distance master piece! The original concept connected Manhattan to the Adirondacks. The current start is the NYC side of the George Washington Bridge, and the Current finishing point is northwest of Albany, in Thacher State Park. This trail does much more than showcase amazing scenery (which it has no shortage of). It connects our urban, and suburban parks, and preserves to the wild forests, and wilderness of the Catskills. It provides an adventurous city dweller a well defined escape route, to an unbeatable selection of some of New York's most spectacular scenery.
