Hudson River Recreation Area Nature Trails

back to hiking index

The Hudson River Nature Trails consist of several interconnected looping trails through the woods and along the scenic Hudson River.  Most of the trails are relatively flat, although there are a couple of moderate climbs on the yellow trail.  The trails are open to cross-country skiers in the winter.  The trails also provide access to the Hudson River Ice Meadows, a rare habitat that supports many endangered plants, including whip nutrush, the sand cherry, the clinton’s clubrush, the dwarf blueberry, the New England violet, and the auricled twayblade.
