Description
Waypoints (0)

This is a nice park for hiking or picnicking, with pretty views of the river. This trail does not meet enough of the guidelines that AllTrails uses to tag wheelchair and stroller friendly trails. The slope (over 12% in multiple places) is estimated to be very steep and the surface, too uneven. Some mobility equipment users may be able to do sections of it.

The trails are in good condition and not too busy this late in the season. The main problem is that it's difficult to cover more than ~3 miles without having to re-do trails. It's a nice park for an easy family hike, but you're not going to have much luck turning it into anything more ambitious than that.

HikingGreat!

Fun casual hike, both on the north and south sides of the entrance road. The north has a fun bridge loop to check out. Pack a lunch for the park.

lovely trail but not wheelchair or stroller friendly, which is what I originally was seeking. just want to warn any other baby-wearing toddler-in-a-stroller moms out there! totally great trail when dad puts toddler on his shoulders!

A lot of fun, short trail, but shady. Some places more overgrown than others. Not the best for biking, but then again, I'm 20 years rusty and on a bike older than that.

Shady trail. Well maintained. Well marked. Large Lot. No Wildlife. Medium/Heavy foot traffic. A good trial to do any time of day.

Was a nice easy hike for the kids. One nice lookout of the Hudson River and a pretty neat Native American era campsite with a teepee and wigwam shelter. Easy hike and only a few hills, kids down to a 6 year old had no issues.

An okay-but-not-great trail. Shady and buggy. The river views were distant but not spectacular. (A big pond with overgrown vegetation dominated the foreground.) Trailhead was a bit hard to find due to lack of signage. It was a very hot day, and we had the trail to ourselves. The bugs were persistent.

A very pretty and serene park once you get moving on the trail. Very easy and scenic.

Great trail for those wanting to get into trail running. Experience all running conditions: mud, gravel, root dodging, grassy hills, and pavement. It’s got some good hills to practice sprinting up or running/ jumping over rocks and roots on the way down. Did it after a workout at my gym. Made me realize that running around the track will no longer cut it. Great views of the river too - if you aren’t bothered by bugs. Mostly shaded. However for hikers I would not recommend this full trial for those in wheelchairs or strollers. Someone has tagged that before - once you enter the woods section there are too many ruts, rocks, and roots for wheelchairs and strollers. However the rest of the park is accessible and along the river so definitely have a picnic and hang out!

Cute little park. Great for a quick walk with a little elevation in some areas.
