Margaret Lewis Norrie State Park adjoins Ogden Mills and Ruth Livingston Mills Memorial State Park and together, comprise more than 1,000 acres. Margaret Lewis Norrie State Park offers a full menu of exhilarating recreational opportunities and activities for visitors of all ages. The numerous trails that thread through the grounds of both Mills and Norrie State Parks are ideal for walking, jogging, hiking, cycling, cross country skiing, and snow shoeing - treating visitors to fabulous views of the Hudson River which runs directly along the parks' western boundaries. A serene wooded area with glimpses of the river provides an ideal location for camping. There are 46 tent sites and 10 cabins available for rental at the park. Recreational vehicles are also welcome; however, the park does not offer hook up facilities. River access is available for campers with boats at the Norrie Marina and at the Norrie Environmental Center. A variety of nature programs are offered on Saturdays during the summer months. Restroom facilities and showers are located within walking distance. A marina consisting of slip space and a boat launch ramp is a popular area within the park. There are 145 slips, both fixed piers and floating docks, which are rented on a seasonal basis. Transient boaters are welcome if space allows. The marina also houses showers and a pump out station. For a nominal fee, electrical hookups are available.
Justin C. on Shaupeneak Ridge Trail
Really enjoyed this trail. It's very easy to navigate, includes a lake, scenic view, and a waterfall.
This is a "must do" if you are in the vicinity! Very easy and accessible 4 mile loop. Do all or some. Bike hike or walk your dog. Can be windy. Open dawn to dusk. Links with many other local trails. Rewarding signage of historical educational value. World class spectacular views for photo-bugs. I'll be back!
I traversed the trail from Rosendale to Gardiner. Very easy direct path with many opportunities to enjoy the surroundings. Rosendale bridge will be a great addition when done. NP is good place to stop for food/beverage ; so trail enhancement (construction ) at the Gardiner end. Many nice hikers and bikers along the way. No shelters, very few benches.
Very well maintained. Great spring foliage; slippery on damp sweaty rocks. Interpretive trail is excellent. Great for birding, watch out for turkey in May ( hunting season!)
Will get buggy later in the season. Bring lots of water. Great overlook views in any season.
