Amazing views of the Hudson along with a tranquil wooded portion...Wear good walking shoes/hiking boots. Large portion is graveled walking path. However, the majority is grass trails/wooded trails that can be slightly wet at times. Worth exploring and enjoying as much as possible!

Poets Walk is lovely but watch your footing. We were walking the trail by the river when wet leaves, mud and my foot getting caught under a tree root sent me to a face dive. Hit hard and fast! 6 stitches to my upper lip,...More

This gentle walk takes you through meadows and woods. On the way gazebos and benches provide places to rest and to enjoy the views. This path is open to dogs that are leashed. Parking is adequate though on good weather days it can get crowded....More

A short level walk will bring you to an overlook of the Hudson, shared by joggers, dog walkers and families. Adequate parking and shade when necessary and good areas to share a picnic. Trail gets a little dicier and downhill if you want to walk...More

We took a walk till the end of the gravel stone pavement, nice and quiet, we caught the sunset as well. It's winter now, which is already scenic, so imagine how beautiful it gets in the summer
