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!

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.
