Storm King Scenic Highway

Cornwall, NY
Without question the Hudson Highlands constitute the most magnificent section of the Hudson River. On the west bank the mighty Storm King Mountain, at 1,355 feet and running sheer to the water below, boldly dominates the terrain above Cornwall. Cutting across this craggy terrain, the Storm King Scenic Highway winds from West Point to Cornwall-on-Hudson offers motoriests, tourists and locals alike a unique and awe-inspiring experience. -John Prizzia Jr., Publisher, The Evening News. [Phot by Paul Rogers]

Storm King Scenic Highway and Dramatic Overlook

Overlooks the Hudson - see for miles!
The Storm King Scenic Highway is a three-mile stretch of Route 218 in Corwall. When it was built in 1916, it was the most expensive highway ever built. Storm King Highway was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982 in recognition of its accomplishment in civil engineering. It is so named because it winds around the steep slopes of Storm King Mountain near its north end of the Hudson Highlands on the west bank of the Hudson River. Here it reaches heights of up to 420 feet (130 m) above the water, with panoramic views of the river and surrounding mountains such as Breakneck Ridge and Bull Hill. Several small pullouts allow drivers to stop and enjoy the view.

The Moodna Trestle

Photographers favorite
The train began operating over the Moodna Creek in 1909 by the Erie & Jersey Railroad. At 3,200 feet long the trestle spans the valley of Moodna Creek. It reaches 193 feet at the highest point over the valley, and is the highest and longest railroad trestle east of the Mississippi River.
Bannerman's - John Morzen

Bannerman's Castle

It's not what you think it is!
Bannerman's is a clever marketing strategy by the owner of the largest arms dealer at the turn of the 18th century. Acquired in 1900 from Mary Taft of Cornwall, Frank Bannerman bought the island as a safe storage site for equipment and munitions. The castle is a fasade with Scottish motifs. While visible from the shore, it was the steamship traffic's attention that Bannerman sought: on the side of the castle Bannerman had spelled out on the wall “Bannerman’s Island Arsenal.” It is now an oft-visited site reachable by kayak from Cornwall or by boat from Beacon/Fishkill.
