Nice stroll to do with my 8 year old. Mostly flat. Mostly walk thru field and forest. Relaxing/meditative. Great views of Catskills in background; but limited views of Hudson.

A perfect steady walk through the woods. Beautiful views of the mountains in spots. Lots of trails to choose from so that each visit is different!

Very easy, family/pet friendly conservatory. If you’re looking to add a little fitness to this hike then do the green trail. All others are super simple. Decent scenic views, several benches for resting with well marked trails.

This place is a little piece of heaven, not only are the trails gorgeous, but easy for beginners and for anyone who wants some peace and quiet. Dusk was perfect timing to visit. If you want to have a picnic or just have a conversation this is what you're looking for in an afternoon hike.

We had never been here despite living in this area forever. We took a picnic lunch and the kids(4 and 8.) The blue trail is a nice easy walk, flat with a well maintained gravel walkway. It looks like the green trail is a bit more challenging but we didn't check that out. Beautiful fields of wildflowers teem with monarch butterflies and giant dragonflies. The mountains lurk blue in the distance. Lovely wooden benches dot the trail and one sits near a nice overlook. There's a beautiful gazebo and a picnic shelter perfect for lunching.

Good option if you are in the Hudson city area. Tips: can be muddy, many trails are out and back (not as much fun as loops), map is not very helpful (IMHO), trails are fairly clean, dogs allowed on leash but many non-compliant owners and there is a lot of dog faeces on the trails, can be windy as you are overlooking the Hudson river. Not many humans about; averaging 2-5 per visit. Saw turkeys, squirrels..., + evidence of deer, coyote, fox. Easy trail also easy to get a bit disoriented. Well maintained.

If you're living in or visiting Hudson, this is the most easily accessible trail system you'll find. This only says there are about 2 miles of trails but there is actually a lot of more if you do all the trails. I've hit just about every inch of trail and I'd say there's closer to 8 miles if you include the Stockport Greenport trail which takes you to Harrier Hill Park. None of them are strenuous but at certain points you get good views of the Catskills. Great for a mellow post-work hike (like I have done many times) or if you're not feeling up for an adventure further outside of town.

A good warmup for some more intense hiking later on. Multiple routes and trails. Didn't get a chance to do them all, but we spent about 3 hours there. Relatively flat. Good for all ages.
