The southern trailhead of the Shore Trail is outside the Visitor Center at Fort Lee Historic Park. From there, the Shore Trail goes down the entrance drive and follows the multi-use trail beside Hudson Terrace south to the Edgewater park entrance, descends to the Hudson River, then goes north along the Hudson shore, passing Hazard’s Dock, through Ross Dock Picnic Area, Englewood Picnic Area, Alpine Picnic Area, and by the Kearney House, eventually crossing the boulder field known as the “Giant Stairs” and on to Peanut Leap Cascade, where it steeply ascends back to the cliff top just north of the New York–New Jersey state line, its northern trailhead at the junction with the Long Path. Except for the Giant Stairs and the ascent to the northern trailhead, the trail covers easy to moderate terrain.
