5 1/2 miles, hot day, worth it… yes
Jul 2021
Definitely learn from my mistakes….. we went after a few very story days and the bugs were out - bug spay would have been good and sun tan lotion. A hat, water, and good comfortable shoes - ready to launch. Split the map in half and bring a snack or lunch for the middle.
Fantastic views with interesting sculptures. We enjoyed also the QR code listening as we arrived at the sculptures. Enjoy!

A must...

We basically drove thru this park. We loved the curvy mountain drive. Stopped at one pull over for fantastic views. Did the drive twice. Beautiful rock ledges, formations and forest.

Storm King Me
Oct 2020
My wife and I have spent many days on the trails in Storm King State Park this Fall 2020. Our first adventure took us around to the eastern side of the Park because of the crowds filling the other parking areas. We hiked from the eastern side up to the views over Cold Spring on the Crow's Nest and then on to the ridge directly across from Storm King. Then we hiked from the Storm King school side up to Butter Hill and back one day--also with fantastic views. Finally we made the hike from Cornwall up the northern slope to the summit of Storm King for glorious views of the Hudson River and the Hudson Highlands. Treat yourself to these trails and you will love the days spent there.

Amazing Hike and Trail
Oct 2020 • Couples
Had an amazing hike here. Total trail distance is around 4 miles. Trail can be slightly difficult at times if you have limited mobility. Elevation range is from start 900 ft to 1372 ft at the top with a total elevation gain of around 771 ft. Total hiking time was 3 and a half hours with about 2 hours total in moving time. The views at the top and sitting areas are perfect for a picnic, date, family outing, exercise and great for dogs. We saw probably 14 dogs on our hike. Parking is a little bit of a hassle with the trailhead entrance and lot located directly off of the highway. But if you get there early or on a weekday you’re guaranteed to get a spot. Everyone maintained great COVID distancing and wore appropriate face coverings when required.

Great Workout, Great Views
Sep 2020
Spectacular views of Hudson River valley and Catskills beyond There are several trailheads for Storm King Mountain; you can start at elevation from route 9W or do the complete climb from Mountain Road or Route 218 You can easily hike for a half day or a full day. Then enjoy nearby pleasures such as kayaking on the Hudson River, visiting Storm King Sculpture Park, West Point, and the eateries and B&Bs in Cornwall-on-Hudson and Newburgh

even better during COVID
Sep 2020
Storm King has worked hard to create a safe environment to enjoy the fantastic sculpture and beautiful countryside. The park is always great but even more so as I appreciated being able to contemplate art while feeling safe. We bought the box lunches that were delicious and nice to have picnic tables nearby. Maps were available near Museum Hill - definitely helped,

Storm King via Mountain Road
May 2020 • Couples
Great hike. Due to coronavirus and lack of things for people to do, aside from utilizing nature, most of the parking spots were taken. Cops were towing illegally parked cars on the side of the road. I parked on a side road on mountain road and found my way up to storm king.

amazing views of Hudson River!!!

This park is not really well known: there is no information booth or large parking areas but the highlight of this park(my opinion) is the summit of Storm King mountain. The trails are well marked and there are three main parking lots, the biggest on 9W and the smallest on Mountain rd. It is helpful to have a map or app to help navigate the trails.

A must see
Oct 2019
This was my second visit to Storm King. First time was on a July day with record heat. Thrilled to return on a beautiful autumn day. It was Columbus Day weekend, so we expected crowds. We arrived shortly after it opened, so didn't have a long wait in line. The park is so enormous, that even though it was very busy for the staff, it never felt crowded. Grabbed a hot dog from the food truck on the way out - very inventive toppings and great service.
The enormous scale of the sculpture collection is most impressive. Great place for art lovers and those who want to spend time outdoors.

Amazing art in a gorgeous outdoor setting
Oct 2019
It's about an hour and a half drive from NYC, but it is truly worth your time. The huge works of art are excellent and the manner in which they are displayed outdoors adds even more power to them. Their visitor center houses a small collection suitable for the indoors and the gift shop. They also have a free tour, usually scheduled at 1 PM which gives a great overview of many pieces of art and the history of the center. There is also a free tram that goes through a lot of the 500 acre property, but you will have to walk to each of the pieces which are spread out in sculptured landscapes. Wear good walking shoes. They is an outdoor area with table if you want to bring your own food, as the on-site food is somewhat limited.
