  • For a $6 parking fee, the hikes at Peebles are easy and scenic. There are a few choices, and most afford you great views of the river or canals. There are also picnic tables and a pavilion on site. 
  • Great place for an easy family "hike"! Great views as well, but keep small kiddos away from trail edge. Lots of spots where one could easily slip and fall if they got too close.
  • Always a nice place to take a walk, any season. Lots of paths, but the best is a walk around the perimeter -- great views of the river. Not recommended for very young children as there are cliffs without fences or any barriers. Stay on the inside paths with the young ones.
  • All the fixings of a state park. I was impressed with the access to the water for boating. There seemed to be a lot going on. Well organized local vendors and entertainment. I didn't mind paying $6 for parking.
  • Nice peaceful location in our State Park looking over The Majestic Hudson River. You will often have the chance to see our Native Bald Eagle's as this area is plentiful.
  • Perfect place to see nature and many animals up close and personal. The walk has a variety of terrain and difficulties.
