Variety of hiking routes, ranges of difficulty; once you get to the top, especially on a clear day, dramatic panoramic views of the Hudson River and Hudson Valley.

Location Scout Trip: Breakneck Ridge

– I had the opportunity last weekend to do some hiking with friends on Breakneck Ridge in Hudson Highlands State Park, NY. As usual, for me, as a location scout, it was a busman’s holiday, of sorts 😉

Besides being a gorgeous park with breathtaking views I have always felt there were some considerable possible location opportunities in the area. Has anyone ever shot at Bannerman Castle? Has Storm King been used in any movies? It seems like there could be some great running shots to be had along that drive!

Nice views of Beacon – Newburgh Bridge 🙂
