About Breakneck Ridge Trailhead, Park Ridge

The Breakneck Ridge Metro-North Railroad station serves hikers and campers traveling to and from Breakneck Ridge, north of Cold Spring, New York, via the Hudson Line. Trains stop there on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays only. It is served by twelve trains daily on those days, six to Poughkeepsie in the morning and early afternoon, and six to Grand Central Terminal in the afternoon and early evening. It is 55 miles (89 km) from Grand Central Terminal and travel time to Grand Central is approximately one hour, 28 minutes. It is located off an embankment from New York State Route 9D, with only one sign (on the east side of the track), merely a small path leading to the overpass and then down to the tracks about a half-mile (1 km) north of the main parking area for the Breakneck Ridge hiking trail. A small, wooden low-level platform permits disembarkation from the front of the last car on the train (i.e. the door one car length from Grand Central Terminal when boarding). Note, due to limited availability, the Cold Spring Station can be used as an alternative to reach this location. It is approximately 2.7 miles away but trains run almost hourly.

  • Great trail! rated hard, but not as scary as it looks, as long as you're in somewhat of a shape and pace yourself and drinks tons of water. trails are marked well, easy to follow. views are amazing. the train drops you off right there, so it's perfect for city dwellers who have no cars. the hike is free!

  • What a great hike! Beautiful views and a great challenge. This isn't for a complete novice or someone who is afraid of falling/heights. It's not terrible and there are many alternative ways to get up (as you'll see, there always a tiny dog that beat you to the top). But, we experienced a lot of people who were basically climbing and were stuck, and therefore holding everyone else up from getting up. I highly recommend this! Also, it's a stop on Metro North, how convenient!!

  • Breakneck Ridge Hike is the best in NY state that is challenging and has great views. It is our second time doing this hike and it never gets boring as you can choose a harder path each time. We usually complete the trail in 2h (starting above the bridge right off the highway, up to the red trail called "bypass" which merges with the yellow trail). Highly recommend to everyone.

  • Very fun hike, many rock scrambling, rated 8/10 level, amazing views at the top. only in the beginning is there real rock scrambling, other wise for the rest it's a regular hike. Had a great time. Would go again.

  • As someone who lives in Manhattan, I'm so grateful to have this trail. It's a quick hour and change on the metro north. The trail itself is challenging for most people. I see a lot of people stop at the first part if you are out of shape. But it's all about the loop.
