Jay is it in new york city?


Masked same as the other one. hudson valley and lower catskills. although road to ruins has some long island ones like camp hero and a few at palisades park, most things in both books require a drive of at least 45 minutes outside the city. overlook mountain is one of my favorites but pine swamp mine is on a trail that gets you several mine areas at once. west point foundry is an old foundry grounds with many of the buildings still semi-standing. i'll try to email you a few photos. it's easy to get to and the trail is just through the buildings. several nice waterfalls. lots of brick.

most of these trails aren't so good for dogs. ruins areas are full of broken glass, pipe, holes and crazy shit. overlook might be okay for dogs who don't leap, but it's a cliff of several hundred feet at one edge.
