This is a very pretty semi-loop trail of approximately 1.75 miles. The trail is well marked with metal trail markers on the trees, and offers very scenic views of the Hudson river. This nature preserve covers 83 acres on a peninsula that juts out into the Hudson River.

Great trail. Well kept and clean. The dogs loved it and were able to swim at the lookouts.

Great hike for kids. There are three areas that you can stop and swim in the Hudson River. My 7 and 8 year old both really enjoyed the hike. We went on a rainy day and stayed dry while under the trees. Would definitely go back.

Nice network of trails that winds along the Hudson River and takes users out to Big Bay, with a bridge across a tributary. Nice place to take the kids and walk dogs.

Took my 2 and 4 year old on this trail and they both loved it. There are spots where you can access the river where they were able to stop and play.

Fun for a trail run, nice views, beautiful trails and not difficult to do. It wasn't very busy but it's a nice way to get out!

some sections were packed down but we just had quite a bit of snow a few days ago so it was a bit powdery...should have brought snowshoes! dog loved it. couldn't find bridge and ended up doing out&back instead of a loop. will revisit in the spring!!!!

Such a nice, peaceful, and quiet hike in the woods that gives you serene views to finish! A must-do for those looking to get out but don't want a busy setting. This would be ideal to snowshoe in the winter as well! :-)

Well maintained trail through the woods that leads out to a beautiful section of the Hudson River. There's a couple of spots to put your feet in or let the dogs swim. Well marked on the way in but I always get turned around on the way out so pay attention! I've only ever done the blue trail which I believe is the longest. It takes about an hour for a casual walk with some stops on the way. Highly recommended!

Excellent for lazy hikers like me! Easy trail, friendly people, gorgeous views!

Due to recent rain fall we couldn't make it to the bridges due to flooded trails. Other than that it was beautiful and well marked.

We went in early April and it was beautiful. It's hidden in a small community and was a really nice hike. There are some steep spots but worth the sweat. We brought our dog and he loved it.

A nice little pleasant walk in the woods. Passed a few friendly people fishing in the Hudson. North side of trail was still flooded. Would be good for afternoon runs if you're looking for a pleasant place to get in shape without traffic to worry about on the roads.

I loved the views and it's a nice shady trail. But the lowest part of the trail was flooded when I went with my son. Like waist deep flooded.

Beautiful views and perfect for me and my dog. One area was flooded out so we couldn't do the whole loop, but it was still great.

One of the Queensbury Rec Department's many nice offerings, it is a nice loop that takes you along the Hudson River. There are a couple of hills as you descend to the river and Big Bay, and you can fish or swim.

It is an easy pleasant walk. Very short maybe less than 1hr.

Brought my 3 year old son, and we did the green trail. He did great. Beautiful trails and very well marked.

Great trail that was expanded in the summer of 2016. It now links up with the Division Street trail to the northish. Dog friendly, but watch for some broken glass. It can get very busy.
The trail starts in an open field, goes through the woods on a terrace, then drops down to meander along the Hudson River to Big Bay, and then back up.

Great trail, beautiful, organized! We actually started following the orange then went to the green then to the yellow marked trails and it took about two hours with stops and chatting. Very beautiful views at the river bridge !!

This was a great trail to take my young children on. Lots to see, wonderful informational signage and a nice mix of terrain types. They especially loved all of the bridges. The woods and water views are very peaceful and we saw many signs of wildlife. I am sure that the birding would be wonderful too (just not when you are traveling with two little kids ;)
I would give 5 stars but there were many piles of dog waste - especially at the trailhead. This is really pathetic given that there are baggies and a trash can right there for cleaning up. Shame on the irresponsible dog owners using the trail!

Some fantastic views too!
You should go to this one!!!
