Ascent Trip ReportStumbled upon all 3 Butter Hill geomarkers while climbing to Storm King Mountain via the orange blazed path. 360 views of Hudson Valley. A very nice find. Continued onto Storm King (teal/yellow blaze) for wide view of Hudson River and Bannerman Castle on the little island. Then took the white blazes back to parking, for a full loop. More views along the way. Never very steep, but there are a few little scramble sections on the orange part. There is no map (or the display there is a faded one you can't read). Nice parking area.
