Wright Pond Cliffs

Wright Pond Cliffs

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.
