About the Event

Dunderberg is a word meaning “thunder mountain”, named so for the frequent thunderstorms encountered by early Dutch settlers in the area. Features visible along its shoulders include Haverstraw Bay, the Palisades, the Timp, West Mountain, Bear Mountain, and the Bear Mountain Bridge. The route utilizes sections of the unfinished Dunderberg Spiral Railway as well as a small portion of the 1777 trail: a route used by Sir Henry Clinton to attack the Revolutionary War forts of Montgomery and Clinton.
