Pleasant, well marked trail that takes you down to the Hudson River with some hilly terrain. Good hike if you want to spend some time by yourself (without fear of falling off a cliff), but you will come across several other hikers. I went with my 11 year old for whom the hike was neither too easy nor too difficult.
This is another great hike with nice views of the Hidson.
Nice hike that takes you to the Hudson River! beautiful scenery!
Beautiful, and easy hike. It is also well marked.
This is a great beginners trail. It's cleared very nicely and has a few spots for views of the Hudson River.
Great hike. A lot of beautiful pictures to take and not hard at all. I would recommend this to and beginner hikers because there are not too many obstacles. Overall great hike.
one of my family's favorite hiking spots. serene setting with a great views of the hudson river.
This is a nice trail for dogs and to get a quick trail run in and it's really easy to find! It's really good for beginners and to just have a nice walk/run in the morning before your day starts or to finish off your day.
Quiet on a Friday morning in mid-August. Very peaceful. My dog and I navigated the trails without any problems. I'm glad I wore my Keen closed-toe water shoes—no slipping or sliding up-or-down. There are many downed hemlocks due to a nasty blight—so sad.
Great family hike. 3.2 miles with plenty of wildlife to keep the kids interested.
Great easy hike, good for dogs and children. Trails are well marked and nothing technical or difficult
Great 2 mile hike for beginners (such as myself). Brought a child and a small dog, no issues. Plenty of spots for river viewing.
very well marked and easy to get to. great access to the Hudson for the dog to swim. great natural landscapes for an hour or two hike.
Very easy hike if you have kids or dog, otherwise very boring. I brought a camera, but didn't bother to take any photo.
Love this hike. Great for dogs. Tons of awesome little frogs in the water. Really fun hike.
Great hike if you don't have a lot of time. Also, great to take the dogs swimming in the Hudson.
Great family hike with the kids. Well marked trails. Beautiful scenery
Great little afternoon walk with the dog. easy, accessible, 3 trails to choose from, hudson river views. well marked trails
