Mt. Taurus

Join us on a hike to
Mt. Taurus in historic Cold Spring, NY.

This 5-hour hike will take us to a summit over the Hudson River. You will be rewarded with stunning views of the river and, on a clear day, Manhattan.  We will take a scenic train ride to the town of Cold Spring.  The town, set on the east bank of Hudson, has many antique stores, nice coffee shops, several restaurants, and a lovely small park.  This town is worth a day's visit even if you do not hike!

The ride on Metro North Hudson line takes an hour and twenty minutes and offers spectacular views of the river.  We will meet at the information booth at Grand Central at 8:25 am.   If you arrive after that time, find us on the train that leaves at 8:43am (Hudson Line).  The round trip ticket is $26. Please buy your own tickets.  Bring a water bottle, light lunch and/or snack for the trail, and a few dollars for a coffee stop at a local cafe.  Wear hiking or sturdy walking shoes (there are some steep parts on decent), and dress in layers for the hike.    Rain cancels.
