Wright Pond Cliffs is named for the series of high cliffs overlooking Wright Pond and Byram Park. Climbing the mountain is a great challenge from the east and south, but there are passable notches through the cliffs.
Like Westby Ridge, Wright Pond Cliffs is owned by Hudson Farm, a private game reserve that is only open to hikers two days per year. Please check back on this website to see when those dates are. Please respect the property owner and do not trespass.
From Westby Ridge I backtracked and kept following a woods road up the mountain until I got to an observation post. Made it up to the true summit and went down to the view past the summit. Backtracked to the car using the same woods roads.
An easy walk with my hiking buddy from Hudson Farms Westby. Followed the dirt road to within 20 yards of the summit. From here, on to Westby Ridge and the end of my quest!
Did Westby Ridge and Wright Pond in a out and back with John. Parked at maintenance area, followed trail to Wright Pond Cliffs retraced steps about halfway and bushwhacked to Westby Ridge Summit.
