Fairly easy trail with a nice view of the bridge.

very nice, too short.

Awesome, wear something for the nats / bugs.
Otherwise loved the old buildings

There are three trails to follow at Franny Reese state park. We arrived from the Walkway over the Hudson, caught the yellow trail to the blue, to the white, where we did the full loop. The look over from the blue trail has great views of both the Mid Hudson Bridge and the Walkway.
Overall the hike is easy. The ruins of Robert's estate always leave me wondering what it once looked like.
On a final note, bring bug spray!

Simple hike, yet very rewarding.. bring your camera

This was a nice trail offering some nice views. The waterfalls were a nice surprise. After strolling along the white path, we finally came to the old ruins. Definitely worth it! This is a nice place to revisit.

Had a very nice day at Franny Reese State Park. It has a little bit of everything: Some inclines, small streams, great overlook of the Mid Hudson Bridge, and lots of wildlife. Saw many birds, and a very large snake! It was a very nice hike.

Small incline in the beginning, fairly easy after.

Nice view, very easy hike.

Like walking on roadways?

I come here all the time for the last 5 years. It is truly a hidden gem and a very easy trail with a big payoff shortly after you start.

Did The Walkway over the Hudson between Highland NY and Poughkeepsie NY yesterday afternoon. It was quite a nice afternoon stroll going past the old bridge. Almost reminded me of the times I'd stroll through the Brooklyn Bridge when I was closer to NYC, except of course Highland is much less crowded and the views are bearer. One side looks over to the NYC area and I was lead to believe that the Empire State building was visible (maybe during the colder seasons when the trees aren't in full bloom), while the other side looks over the uninhibited Catskills.
It was a nice walk filled with good vibes.
