Wittenberg – Cornell, Hudson Valley, Guided Hike | undefined

Enjoy a challenging hike to the summits of 2 great peaks in the Hudson Valley in the state of New York: Wittenberg and Cornell, with one of our AMGA certified mountain guides.

1 Day

Mar - Sep




Are you looking for a scenic, but challenging full day escape in the natural landscape of the Hudson valley? Then this amazing hike is definitely for you. We would like to offer a trekking trip that will see you ascending to the summits of 2 great peaks in the area: Wittenberg (3,784 feet) and Cornell (3,868 feet).

During this wonderful hike, you will get to enjoy a series of spectacular views of the Hudson valley. You will get to see what will seem like an endless collection of trees, lakes, rivers and meadows. You may even get lucky and be able to spot some of the vibrant area’s wildlife, too. And that’s before we even reach Wittenberg and Cornell.

When we finally do reach the peaks of this trip, we will first ascend Wittenberg. Following the summit of Wittenberg, we will proceed along a narrow ridge line that spans 10 to 50 feet to the Cornell Crack. The Cornell Crack is a challenging and unique feature of the mountain that will require you to use your hands. Afterwards, we will then hike to the summit of Cornell, where you will get to enjoy even more great views of the valley below.

Because this trip has some technical challenges, participants should have some previous experience. And because we will be hiking for approximately 7 miles, you should also be in good physical condition as well.

If you are looking for a adventure in the state of New York, then this hiking trip to the summits of Wittenberg and Cornell is for you. And to experience it for yourself, all you have to do is send us a request!

Great guides and great snow!



Will was great wise and fun to spend the day with.



Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.



All perfect



Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
