(Return to) Black Rock Forest, Orange County, New York

On October 3, YBS and I paid our first visit to Black Rock Forest, hiking through the eastern part of the preserve. We returned two weeks later, with our friend Bombastic, and checked out the western part of the preserve.

Black Rock Forest, Orange County, New York

My friend YBS and I visited Black Rock Forest, a privately-owned preserve in the Hudson Highlands, on the west side of the Hudson. It was the first time either of us had been there. I learned of it through the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference’s map set of the West Hudson Trails. The forest is off Highway 9W, immediately west of Storm King Mountain and north of the United States Military Academy at West Point.
