  • A few short trails but they were clear and beautiful views.
  • As usual the crew was wonderful. Thank you for making it a good place to go and be welcome.
  • This is a beautiful and peaceful place to enjoy the view of the light house and river. A great place to relax and picnic.
  • This small nature preserve offers one of the few Hudson River Bank exposures free of dangerous train track crossings. Offering an unobstructed view of the historic esopus lighthouse, the small picnic area here is perfect for families. Visitors can wind through dense oak Forest along 3 interwoven trails of easy to moderate difficulty. The esopus Meadows preserve is a wonderful place to bring your dog for a quick splash in the Hudson. I've returned several times for a pleasant walk in the woods, and expect to return again and again.
  • Loved it, beautiful scenery and the little light house is historical, come by and check it out when you're in the area 👍👍👍
