I had higher hopes for this hike - waterfalls are very small and no major sights. Trails are not too strenuous and there are pretty views of the water.
Easy trails, very well signalized, beautiful little fall/ stream to the left, nice river views to the right. We walked 2 trails and roundtrip was about one hour with a few stops.
We walked 3 of the 4 trails here. All were easy to walk, short distances and had lovely views of the falls, the river and more. Lovely wooden benches located at each point of interest.
Beautiful green hiking area but the falls were a trickling disappointment could be due to the drought. There is a nice view of The Hudson River.
Easy to moderate terrain with nice views of the Hudson River and small waterfall along a creek.
Nice hike area. Be sure not to miss the ice house ruins. It was a huge structure and vital business for many years.
A great addition to Saugerties. The park has a couple of miles of wilderness trails and some beautiful places to sit. Scenic Hudson did a great job allowing people to hike and see the Hudson River. This park is new and I'm sure will get other improvements as time goes on. There is also a nice beach to land on with kayaks at the southern end of the park. It's a great kayaking trip from the Esopus Creek in Saugerties or from Tivoli. Walk or kayak but don't miss it.
Is a nice little park on a little-visited stretch of the Hudson River.
