This hike passes several panoramic viewpoints over the Hudson River and follows an historic road used by Benedict Arnold to escape during the Revolutionary War.

41.380049, -73.94699

Just south of the southern entrance to the station, you’ll notice two stone pillars and a sign for “Arden Point – Hudson Highlands State Park.” This is the trailhead of a blue-blazed woods road which heads south. Follow this woods road, soon passing ruins of brick buildings on the right and crossing a wooden footbridge over a stream.

That is technically outside of the park, but it's a really pretty spot...
