If you're in New York City and need a day away from the city, this is for you! We will take a train and hike about 5-8 miles overlooking the Hudson River. This is a moderate hike - easy pace and varied terrain. There are several options in terms of distance, so we can customize the duration and distance. Note that it is a loop so there is no bailout point.

  • Breakneck Ridge to Cold Spring

    Smita's Breakneck Ridge tour was an incredible experience, and completely unexpected. Having visited NYC numerous times, I had no idea that this great hiking spot was so accessible. Meetup at Grand Central was spot on, great conversation, she had already purchased my ticket so we got right on the train and had a heck of a hike. Breakneck Ridge, while slightly crowded, is definitely no joke! I was exhausted by the end of the day, but the packed lunch was perfect and she even brought some sweets to munch on to keep the energy up. Overall, a really great experience, and one I'm glad I took a chance on.

    The experience was awesome! John and I shared similar values in terms of travel and culture, and embark was a great platform to find such experiences. Communication and transaction was seamless. I haven't heard from any other guests so I don't expect to be super-busy, but this was went perfectly.
