Uploaded by VISITvortex on Sep 23, 2010

http://www.visitvortex.com From the parking area an old road leads to the remains of the station house, where passengers used to board the Mount Beacon Incline Railway. The trail starts with a stairway containing an observation deck that offers the first views over the valley. The trail continues switchbacking up the steep slopes. A spur to the right leads to a second observation deck built by volunteers. Atop the summit are the remains of the incline railway’s wheelhouse, including impressive remnants of the original machinery. Passing the foundations of the Beaconcrest Hotel and Casino (in reality a dance hall), the trail leads to spectacular views of the City of Beacon, the Hudson Valley, and the Hudson Highlands. Driving Directions: The parking area and trailhead are located at the intersection of Route 9D and Howland Avenue in the City of Beacon.
