Hudson Highlands Gateway Park
I discovered this park, just east of Anthony's Nose, while scanning the NYNJTC East Hudson Trails Map 101. A web search yielded a park brochure and a detailed trail map. Apparently this park is still in development, but that didn't deter us from hiking nearly every path in the entire park. Since the blazes are sporadic in parts, we ended up backtracking a bit for a total of about 6-6.5 miles in just over 3.5 hours.
