We went hiking in the North of New York city today.

We rented a car as usual at the local Avis shop on 43th Wet. Great team. Very friendly. We upgraded to a 4×4 SUV Toyota and the hiking team was on its way. We had an interesting Asian background covering Japan, China, Taiwan and Hong Kong plus the usual Breton and Charentaise.

The trail was part of the 60 trails within 60 miles from New York book.

A tough trail, that we started from Otterkill road trail head. The loop is starting on the lower West side of the ridge, with great view to the West and North, then switched to the higher East side of the ridge with great 360 views of the Hudson Valley, Harriman State Park and large wooden areas west on the river.

The second part was tough, with 3-4 meters walls to escalate, tough rocks walls, but still a lot of fun for fit people ( 2 x half marathons and a 50 miles bike ride in the past 30 days).

A tough hike, 9.6 miles, great views, some fun rock climbing.

And we saw 2 snakes, the second one a big rattle snake. Many more probably saw us moving around on the ridge of Schunemunck mountain, which means “Ancestral Fireplace” or “Excellent Fireplace” in Lenape language.
