Best Hikes in the Hudson Valley

I'm always looking for the best hikes in Hudson Valley! There is so much great hiking in this area, it's insane. It's actually become a relatively cool activity. As you drive by Breakneck Ridge for example, you'll see tons of young hipsters flanking the roads, on their way to the hike.

Honestly though, hiking is a relatively new hobby of mine.  My first couple of times didn't go so well (this newbie was NOT prepared for that six-hour hike that my friends suggested it would be fun.) It almost scared me off hiking for good!

When my husband suggested we try it again, I thought why not?  I'd already lived to tell the tale after the six-hour hike, and NOTHING could be as bad as that.

Turns out, it's gotten easier since those first couple of times.  I started anticipating what to expect, and we've been hooked ever since!  Now I find there's nothing quite like it.  The rush somehow keeps me feeling great all week long.

My favorite are short-ish hikes that are challenging, but not impossible.  So I've rounded up a couple of my favorites here!  Starting with easy to hard, there's something for everyone to try.

You know, I've never felt like I've been great at getting those super perfect Instagram-y shots.  You know, the ones that are so cute, majestic or clever that people practically throw their likes at them.


New Hampshire and VT Roadtrip!! ++ Part 1

This past few months, it's been sort of a whirlwind of Hipcamp trips.  I've been agonizing about what to write about my journey up north with my friend Alyson.
