About the Mount Beacon Hike

See the Hudson River in all its beauty starting the day with a morning moderate to difficult 2 1/2-mile (4 km) hike up Mount Beacon! We'll be 2,210 feet (.67 km) above sea level and this approximate 2 1/2-hour round trip hike will certainly make you marvel at the highest summit in the Hudson Highlands Mountains. Gorgeous views await you at one of the most popular hiking destinations in the Hudson River Valley! 

About Benmarl Winery (America's oldest vineyard)

Enjoy some wine with us! Nestled in the lush green hills of Marlboro, NY and overlooking the historic Hudson River Valley, this 37-acre estate lays claim to the oldest vineyard in America! Although history runs deep here, it is the tireless commitment to quality and consistency that has made Benmarl one of the premier wineries in the region. New York wines are making a name for themselves on the world stage and Benmarl is proud to be a leader in that movement.
