Well, not much compares to the Giant's Workshop. That place is awesome.
Two really nice hikes that me and the Mrs do quite frequently are:
Breakneck Ridge, outside of Cold Spring, or
Schunemunk, in Mountainville (near Vails Gate, south of Newburgh)
Breakneck is more scrambling, nice views of the Hudson, then an easier hike back around and down.
Schunemunk is just a beautiful hike, nice rock to walk on, kinda like a "mini-trapps", only the rock is shades of pink and maroon. (Plus there's an area called the Megaliths there, with huge detached blocks to scramble/boulder on and around)
PM me if you'd like more details on either. I have maps/guides for both.
