Short hike through woods and fields with gorgeous Hudson Valley views. Nice place to get away for an hour, alone or with a quiet companion.

shared by the Delano estate, FDR's Mom, and the Livingston estate (yes, those pre revolution folks) that dips down to the Hudson River shore through stately old trees. Long enough to offer privacy most of the way. Pets allowed and ample parting and no charge.

Wonderful rolling path that moves between woodland and open areas. On hot days this gives a great break from the heat as you move under the tree cover. The views of the river are amazing.

Stopped here on a warm sunny Sunday before jumping in the car for the long drive home. What a great idea! The gentle trail is an easy, scenic walk with a great view of the river. I would love to visit in the fall!

The Poet's walk is aptly named. A gentle sweet walk with benches and views. Dog friendly with leash, people friendly. Inspiring views of fields and the beautiful Hudson River.

Poet's Walk is a beautiful walk which will take about 45 minutes if you walk the entire loop. It's a really peaceful place, and bring your dog (on a leash). I don't walk there in the mushy wet season of March, but if that doesn't...More

Easy wide paths in big open fields and woods that overlook the Hudson River, and that take you right down to it if you desire.
