Very easy walking, biking, or running trail. Wheelchairs would even be fine...except for the staircase areas. Great spot for kids and dogs. Beautiful scenery and tons of interesting history. There is a virtual walking tour you can access too if you want to take in the historic markers all over the trail. We came here on Memorial day and got to hear the cannons across the river at West Point. Pretty cool considering the day. Beautiful stream with small falls that is fun for exploring. If you are looking for a short walk through history with zero stress this is a great spot. Don't leave out the little church and park across the street from the railroad station.

Nice little historic area with the old mill in the woods. Stream in the woods and nice views of a marsh with marked trails. You could either park at the Cold Spring train station and cross over or at the parking area where I began my recording

Excellent trail. Very easy for the kids. Super scenic and just one ascent towards the middle of the loop. Great beginner trail if you’ve never hiked.

Very easy trail for young kids. My 4 year old did it without any problem and there were areas that I let my 1 year old walk.

Très bien, très simple, accessible par tous. Découverte de l’histoire de l’ancienne fonderie avec un parcours magnifique en sous bois, ruisseau, cascade et beaucoup d’animaux.

Easy peasy with a short incline and a narow steep climb down. Pretty little brook and postings of route's history. If anything it is just a tinsy hard than a walk in Central Park. Watch out for some pieces of broken glasses toward the peak of the hill.
