Blowdown has been removed
The blowdown you mention was removed today. I'm told that it did indeed completely block the trail, and that it took the volunteers who worked on clearing it over two hours to remove it completely. The Shore Trail should now be open and passable in this area.

Shore Trail blocked by tree
Tried to hike this yesterday and The Shore Trail between Greenbrook Falls and Huyler’s Landing Trail is blocked by a massive fallen tree. The trail is basically impassable at this point. We decided not to risk injury by trying to detour around the tree since it was steep and muddy in this area. We turned back and hiked the way we came. Still enjoyed the high 50's weather on a beautiful day along the Hudson.

Real nice moderate hike. The first stretch is mostly along the Hudson, with nice views.

nice hike Mar 2014
we've done a lot of hiking in the pallisades but we never did this stretch between huylers and the boat basin before. today was the day - early spring but temps in the 60s make it the perfect day for the hike. no chance of getting lost on this one as the trails are clearly marked and well travelled. we took 4 hours for this hike including some generous time for rests, sightseeing and geocache searching. great views from the overlooks on the long path between greenbrook and englewood...
