  • I mainly use Hudson Mills for walking/jogging and XC skiing in the winter. The trails are well maintained and marked. In the winter, the variety of XC skiing trails is impressive, and the rental equip...  more »

  • Hudson Mills is another great example of a metro park system that we are very lucky to have. The walking and bike paths are beautiful and very well maintained. The river is beautiful any time of year. Cross country skiing coming up along with all of the special events make the metro parks an extremely good value!
  • Hudson Mills Metropark is fantastic any time of year, but make sure to watch for the annual Maple Sugaring in the spring! You have to sign up in advance but they take you out, show you how to tap maple trees, show how the sap is collected, show the way the Native Americans made maple syrup, and demonstrate how the syrup is made using the wood burning stove they use to make the syrup every day! PLUS you get a pancake breakfast which the kids LOVE.
  • Very large and has lots to offer from running, soccer fields, picnic areas, and freebie golf. They keep the soccer fields some what maintained but could do better.
  • I always go tubing here, the river can be shallow at times, but the staff here is very pleasant, and the park itself brings in a lot of people who are friendly. Dont use the bathrooms here if you can, they're not bathrooms, they're just holes in the ground (for the most part)
  • Awesome park for a family outing. Hope the metropark passes stop getting more expensive every year, though.
