here's a description of the initial 11 miles in NJ to wet the whistle

                "The Long Path is located on the top of the Palisades
                along the west shore of the Hudson River, extending 11
                miles from Fort Lee near the George Washington
                Bridge, north to the New York State line. In fact, the
                view of the bridge that can be had from the beginning
                of the path is unequaled. The cliffs here form an
                extremely steep escarpment, rising 500 feet straight up
                from the shore of the Hudson River."
