Anthony's Nose

Hudson Highlands
Westchester County, New York

Hiking Members:
Mordy Neuman

Hike up Anthony's Nose the day after a snowstorm, with a fresh layer of snow on the ground. Weather was about 20 degrees (Fahrenheit). We were the first ones to make the footsteps in the snow on the hike, and the only people on the hike that day. Started on Route 6/202 Trailhead by Broccy Creek, and ascended to summit on the Camp Smith Trail. Got lost near the top since the trail markers were on the rock face which was covered with snow. But found the trail and summit shortly thereafter.
