Body

The revised 12th edition of our East Hudson Trails map set is available in print and digital formats!

 

A completely revised 12th edition of the East Hudson Trails map set, showing more than 150 miles of trails in the New York Highlands east of the Hudson River, now includes trail mileage numbers on the face of the map. This edition also features new, improved elevation contour lines and several important trail changes.

Trail mileage numbers give distances between trail junctions and important features along the trail, and this popular feature is now on more than half of our trail maps. In addition, the improved contour lines make cliffs and steep trail areas much easier to identify.  The graphic to the right shows a comparison of these new features with our previous 2014 map.


Among the other significant changes on the maps are a revised trail system at Manitou Point Preserve, a newly built section of Highlands Trail, revised blaze colors in Manitoga, the addition of marked trails in Garrison School Forest, large parkland additions to Hudson Highlands State Park Preserve and Fahnestock State Park, and other new trails in these parks. Many additional adjustments to the maps make this 12th edition of East Hudson Trails more accurate than ever before.

Parks shown on the maps include Fahnestock State Park, Hudson Highlands State Park Preserve, Castle Rock Unique Area, Hudson Highlands Gateway Park, Manitoga, Manitou Point Preserve, Mount Beacon Park, Nelsonville Nature Preserve, Garrison School Forest, and West Point Foundry Preserve. All maps include UTM gridlines, parking areas, viewpoints, and other points of interest.

The maps are available in print format, in vibrant color on our popular waterproof, tear-resistant Tyvek; shop online, visit our headquarters, or look for them at an outdoor retailer new you. In addition, they are now available in digital format on Apple and Android devices through the Avenza Maps app, including for the first time as a combined app map that combines the three section maps: Map 101, Map 102, Map 103, and the new Combined East Hudson Map (pictured to the right).


At only $11.95 ($8.96 for members), this map set is a must-have for enjoying the excellent outdoor experiences throughout the Hudson Highlands region.
