Our hike, to quote AllTrials, is a “moderate trail” that will include a trek up about 1400ft to Bull Hill where we can see (weather permitting) the New York City skyline from 53 miles away.
For the day, we will cover about 8 miles total. This includes the walk through the cute and cozy Main St in Cold Spring to get to the trail.
This hike will definitely raise your heartbeat. How do you know if you are fit enough? If you practice yoga at least once a week or are moderately physically active then you will have no problem completing this hike.

Mid-hike we will stop and take in some nature, meditate, do some light stretching, some breathing practices and you can enjoy your lunch. Pack a lunch to rewards you for all your efforts; snacks, energy bars, sandwich, chocolate, fruit, veggies...etc. The next time you will eat will be about 6pm at the Peekskill Brewery.
