Hudson Valley Scenic Drive

(Originates from Cromwell Manor Inn, Cornwall, New York)

Are you looking for a very scenic drive (1 1/2 hours) in the heart of New York’s Hudson Valley? Well, here it is:

Take a left from the driveway of Cromwell Manor Inn.
Continue to traffic circle.
Go halfway around circle, continuing onto Main Street.
Go through first stop light. At next light, bear right, passing the pond.
At blinking stoplight, continue straight.
Stay on Route 218 (it takes a 90 degree right in town).
Go up 218 being sure to take the first pullout for a great view of the Hudson River.
Continue up the mountain to 9W south. Be sure you get on 9W south, not north!
Go to traffic circle and continue straight on 9W south.
Take first right to Bear Mountain.
Continue until you see Perkins Memorial Drive.
Take Perkins Memorial Drive to top of Bear Mountain.
On a clear day, you can see the skyline of Manhattan if you look carefully.

When you come back down the mountain, you can return by reversing the directions above, or you can take a right when you get to the bottom of Perkins Memorial Drive and then follow the signs to Seven Lakes Drive.
Stay on Seven Lakes Drive and enjoy great views until you get to Route 6 West. Take a right on Rt. 6 West to Route 32 North, continuing until you see Woodbury Common Premium Shopping Outlet on your right.
Go past Woodbury Common by about 1 mile into Central Valley.
Take a right on Smith Clove Road at the traffic light in Central Valley (there is a Chinese restaurant on your right). Smith Clove Road eventually turns into Angola Road.
Go about 8 ½ miles and you will pass Jones Farm on your left.
Cromwell Manor Inn is on your left after Jones Farm.
