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.

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!
