Peebles Island State Park is at the confluence of the Hudson and Mohawk Rivers. It offers spectacular river and rapids views for walkers and joggers who take advantage of the miles of paths through the gently rolling and wooded landscape. Picnickers and fishermen come to relax and winter visitors use the facilities to cross-country ski, hike and snowshoe. Peebles Island is also the headquarters of the Bureau of Historic Sites and Bureau of Historic Preservation Field Services. The staff provide technical services, such as record maintenance, analysis of artifacts, and preparation of publications, exhibits and audio visual programs for the 35 historic sites maintained by State Parks. The Field Services Bureau assists all New York's municipalities and citizens with National Register of Historic Place listings, investment tax credit and review of all state and federal projects.
This is a great trail for all ages and 4 legged friends! Flat and well worn loop. As you are walking the edge of an island for the majority of the trail, the view is ever changing and enjoyable. More often than not I will see deer who are not spooked very easily and let you get quite close.
Pack a snack or lunch as there are 2 stops with picnic tables.
One of the best trails in the area IMO.
