This hike begins at Fort Lee Historic Park and covers about 2 mi. over relatively easy terrain but with a steep and somewhat challenging descent in the middle. From Fort Lee Historic Park, hike north on the sidewalk along Hudson Terrace to the metal stairways that go up and into the woods on the aqua-blazed Long Path just north of the George Washington Bridge. Follow the Long Path north, exploring some of the unmarked but well-defined side trails overlooking the Bridge if you wish. About 0.5 mi. on the Long Path, look for the top of the blue-blazed Carpenters Trail, and take this down to the Shore Trail. Take the white-blazed Shore Trail south beneath the Bridge, passing the Hazards Dock boat ramp, for another 0.5 mi., where it will turn uphill to take you to the parks Edgewater Entrance. Back at Hudson Terrace, turn north and return to start on the multi-use path.

Points of interest on the Carpenter Loop hikes: The George Washington Bridge is considered one of the worlds busiest bridges. It opened in October 1931; the lower level was completed in the early 1960s. Carpenters Trail is named for Carpenter Brothers Quarry, the largest and most destructive of the Palisades quarries of the late nineteenth century. Objections to the quarries led to the creation of the Palisades Interstate Park in 1900 (signs of the quarrys blasting can be seen in the relative smoothness of the cliff face here). The Riviera, one of the premier nightclubs of the mid-twentieth century, was sited just north of the Bridge.

From the south end of the Englewood Picnic Area, notice the set of stone stairs that goes up to the sidewalk on Dyckman Hill Road. Take these, then using caution cross to the yellow-blazed Dyckman Hill Trail on the other side of the road, taking this trail up to the summit. Bear right (north) at the junction of Palisade Avenue and the entrance to the northbound Parkway and find where the aqua-blazed Long Path goes north from that point. Continue north on the Long Path to the red-blazed Huylers Landing Trail. (To shorten this hike, we recommend High Toms or the Rockefeller Lookout or Clinton Point as turn-back pointsbeyond Clinton Point, the trail begins to get more difficult, and considerably less scenic until you are beyond Greenbrook Sanctuary.) Note: The northernmost mile of this hike is shown in the inset, left. Take the red-blazed Huylers Landing Trail downhill to the white-blazed Shore Trail, then head south (right turn) to return.
