Hudson Highlands Fjord Trail, Inc., the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, Metro-North Railroad, and the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference announced that the work at the Upper Overlook area of the Breakneck Trailhead has been completed on schedule. The Breakneck Trailhead, which has been closed since work began on March 1, 2023, will reopen to the public on Saturday, July 1, 2023.

The scope of this work includes the relocation of the Breakneck trailhead farther up Breakneck Ridge, repair of eroding trail surfaces, improved stormwater management along the trail, installation of stone steps leading up to the Breakneck ascent, and the construction of a new Trail Steward Station.
