Little Stony Point
What They Are about
This is a great spot to visit after you tackle one of the bigger hikes in the area, like Bull Hill or Breakneck Ridge. The trail takes you up on top of the small cliffs, which is a great spot to take in a view of the river. On a summer evening with a nice sunset, this would be an excellent place to grab a few photos.
So come visit Little Stony Point, especially as an excellent way to top off a day of hiking around Cold Spring. Even if you’re tired from hiking elsewhere when you visit, you’ll make it, I swear.
Your experience at Little Stony Point will vary greatly depending on when you visit. I’ve been here on a sunny summer afternoon, when the place had a Jersey Shore atmosphere, with people in lounge chairs on the beach and boats anchored just offshore, with revelers blaring Bon Jovi. Other times, it’s a quiet place to take in a sunset over the water, with the Hudson Highlands as a gorgeous backdrop.
