Most serious hikers scoff at the thought of an East Coast trail coming close to the mountainous West in terms of strenuousness. But a little trail just two hours outside of New York City will leave the hardiest of globe-trotting mountaineers pleading for salvation. The Devil’s Path is home to six peaks above 3,500 feet and spans over 14,000 feet in length. Test your footing with near-vertical slabs of slippery rocks and dense undergrowth, and reward yourself with spectacular views of splashing waterfalls, secluded woodlands, and vistas that span four different states. It’s a far cry from the hubbub of the city.
