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.
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!
Followed primative woods road down from Westby Ridge and connected to original woods road I had been on. Turned left (east) towards Wright Pond Cliffs. Initially took incorrect right turn and ended up in a a clearing where I was a amazed to see a beautiful Eagle souring from tree to tree. This was one of the hike hilites. Backtracked and then found the correct woods road which lead all the way to the summit. Just had a very short bushwhack finally to the summit point. Then continued on the fading woods road to the overlook where there was a fireplace and views to the pond below. Returned to my car. Texted my contact who said he was happy I enjoyed my hike. #41.
