How is this section? I was told to start at the trailhead near Peekskill. Should I head South or North? Does anyone have some pictures? Any higlights I should see around this area?

Thanks for the input, I am thinking abot hiking part of this section and any/all feedback would help!

Just noticed I put this in the wrong section (too many tabs open in firefox!)

I will ask this in the trailheads section but btw are there any near shelters around this area? If so, where? South or North? Pictures?

Check the AT data book or go online to ALDHA (http://www.aldha.org/comp_pdf.htm) for their companion and download the section to check on shelters, etc. Note - water sources can be scarce in NY.
I think I have a few pics on my gallery of the bridge, Lemon squeezer, etc. Bear mtn area is interesting as are the wildlife exhibits. I can tell you, the climb up from Bear Mtn bridge to Graymoor NOBO was a bit of a bear though... :)
