waterfall, scenic view, easy walk Located along the Hannacroix Creek, this nature preserve is a pleasant location for hking, cross country skiing and nature watching. A trail map is available at the trailhead kiosk. From the kiosk, take the Irving Trail up the hill. A loop trail on the left (Red Trail) leads to a scenic vista and passes some interesting rock ledges. Continue on the blue trail down to the creek level. The trail continues along the banks of the creek. Finally, you reach a short spur trail on the right that leads to a nice waterfall. From the parking area, you can also access the Hudson River Intertreptive Trail by following the trail across the highway (Rte 144). The River Trail passes a wetlands area and crosses a unique bridge made from recycled plastic. It ends at the shore of the Hudson River.

Hannacroix Creek Preserve is not on Castleton Island. It is north of New Baltimore off Route 144. There is a nice little parking lot. From this lot there is one Trail down to the river and another trail heading west where the waterfall is, the highlight of the trail, best seen after spring thaw or rainfall.

waterfalls are very minimal during the fall. path is easy to follow

Good location- quiet, but some of the trails are unkempt featuring dense foliage and a high chance of ticks, thorns or poison ivy6. Waterfalls are really nice.

This was a great easy hike. The water falls are very cool and provide a nice deep swimming pool. My dog loved it too Bring bug spray and water shoes.
