Storm King Scenic Highway

7.2 miles: 0 hours, 13 minutes

Carved into the side of Storm King Mountain, SR 218 offers stunning views of the Hudson River Valley from a high vantage point. Watch your speed as you handle numerous curves along Storm King Scenic Highway—a short stone wall is all that separates the two-lane highway from a steep drop-off.


SR 218 leads you past the natural beauty of the Hudson River to the United States Military Academy at West Point. Numerous pullouts offer a chance to soak up the panoramic views. A 4-mile section of the highway passes through Storm King State Park high above the river.
