Hiking Club – Mt. Taurus

Sunday, November 6th, 2022
Mt. Taurus
“A Birds Eye View Beyond Belief”

Just south of Beacon Mountain and Breakneck, is Mt. Taurus. The hike starts in the town of Nelsonville off of Wood Ave. The hike begins at the base of the mountain inland, and as you go up, you see the Hudson River and the mountains on the far side of the river peek into view. After nearly two hours of hiking you reach the summit, and you have breathtaking views of the Hudson River Valley looking north, and excellent views of the Hudson below. On a clear day, you can see the Catskills, as well as the Mid Hudson and Bear Mountain Bridges. Stewart airport is also right across the river, and you have a great view of Beacon Mountain and will be actually looking down on breakneck Mountain. There are some steep parts of the hike, but no rock climbing. Hiking boots are very important for this hike. Please bring plenty of water, and a nice lunch to enjoy on the summit.
