The revised 8th edition of our West Hudson Trails map set is now available in print and digital formats!

The revised 8th edition of our West Hudson Trails map set, featuring junction-to-junction trail mileage numbers and the latest trail updates, is a must-have for exploring trails west of the Hudson River in the Hudson Highlands of Orange County, New York.  This two-map set features more than 70 miles of maintained trails in Black Rock Forest, Schunemunk State Park, Storm King State Park, and other nearby parklands.

The 2019 edition includes new trails within and adjacent to Black Rock Forest, a new trail at the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum's Wildlife Education Center at Round Top Park, adjustments to scenic viewpoint throughout the area, the addition of several newly-preserved lands and updates to state park boundaries, and the latest trail relocations.  Many other updates and adjustments make this 8th edition of West Hudson Trails our most accurate map yet of these Orange County parklands.

Additional map features include detailed junction-to-junction trail mileage numbers, 20-foot elevation contour lines, parking areas, scenic viewpoints and other points of interest, and UTM gridlines.  More than 10 miles of the Long Path is shown, and nearly 25 miles of the Highlands Trail is included.

The maps are available in print format, in vibrant color on our popular waterproof, tear-resistant Tyvek; shop online, visit our headquarters, or look for them at an outdoor retailer near you.

In addition, the maps are also available on Apple and Android devices through the Avenza Maps app.  To get the latest maps, and to help ensure the Trail Conference receives as much of your support as possible, please consider making your purchase directly from the following links: Bundle of 2 maps, Map 113 (Black Rock Forest, Storm King), and Map 114 (Schunemunk Mountain).
