Hiking Breakneck Ridge

While the title of this hiking area doesn't exactly encourage those who are not sure-footed, we needed to escape the city for a day, so escape we did. We grabbed a Metro-North train up to Cold Springs and hiked to our hearts content. This area doesn't have too many hills, so there wasn't a ton of elevation climb, but there were some nice viewpoints and we were away! The only bad part...after hiking 7 miles, we couldn't locate the other train "station" (a ten-foot wooden platform) in time to catch the train back to Cold Springs and we ended up walking the 2 miles back along the tracks, then having dinner at the Cold Springs French restauarant. We saved the other dinners from our hiking stench and opted to eat on the patio :)
