From the Alpine parking area along the top to the State Line (NY/NJ)
Boundary Marker; down steeply to the bottom of Peanut Falls; along the
shore of the Hudson River over the rocks of Giant's Staircase --
sometimes just a few feet above the water -- sometimes up on the steep
slope; back to the top up the steep path with its stairs; and finally
the castle-like monument to the Federation of Woman's Clubs. A
relatively short but interesting trip only 10 miles north of NYC.

|The Palidades are on the west
side of the Hudson River from
just below the George Washington
Bridge to above the NY/NJ
border. We hiked the northern
section starting just south of the
NY/NJ line, going north along the
top, down to the bottom by
Peanut Falls, then south along the
rocky shore into NJ before returning
to the top and our car.
