Bull Hill

Sunday, April 25, 2021

Bull Hill, also known as Mt. Taurus, is perhaps less well-known than its neighbor Breakneck Ridge or Storm King Mountain accross the river. But that doesn’t mean that it offers less to explore! Join us for a day of adventure as we spend the day in the wild, explore the ruins of the Cornish Estate – now overgrown and returning to nature, and enjoy beautiful views of the Manhattam skyline. Wondering how the mountain got its name? Your guide will tell you the story behind Bull Hill.
