Hiking in Adirondack Park
Hudson Gorge Primitive Area
on the Hudson
This hike takes you to the shore of the Hudson River at scenic section of the river under cliffs known as the Blue Ledges. The river makes a right angle bend at this location and is filled with big boulders which depending on water level may be well above the flow or part of a huge white water. There is a small sandy bank shore for those who like to wade.
The trailhead is along the North Woods Club Road (west off of NY 28N about 1.7 miles north of Minerva) just before you reach Huntley Pond. The road is a good gravel road for the most part. It dips down to cross the Boreas River which is an interesting place to stop and explore along the way.
The start of the trail passes around the east end of Huntley Pond on a well used trail marked with blue DEC markers. Its a 2.5 mile one way hike to the Hudson River. The trail is #60 on the map below.
Directions: From North Creek, take NY 28 north for 9.4 miles, then left on the dirt North Woods Club Road for just under 7 miles.
