On Monday afternoon, March 9, a fire began on Breakneck Ridge near Cold Spring, N.Y. By the following morning, officials reported that 150 acres had burned on Breakneck and that fires were continuing to the north and east. Accordingly, New York State Parks has closed the following Hudson Highlands State Park Preserve trails until further notice: Wilkinson Memorial Trail, Breakneck Ridge Trail, Breakneck Bypass Trail and the Undercliff Trail. At the moment, access to the wheel house and casino remains from Scenic Hudson’s Mount Beacon Park trailhead is unaffected.
