Little Stony Point, Hudson Valley Hike

The Hudson Valley has a lot of crazy scrambly and steep mountain hikes. Sometimes you just want a relaxing stroll. Little Stony Point [intersection Route 9D and Fair St, Cold Spring, NY] is a one mile loop that does not lack natural beauty, but is family friendly and super scenic hike, right across the street from Bull Hill.
