Esopus Meadows Preserve is a 96-acre preserve that offers your pick of trails — trek through a rolling forest landscape or hug the shoreline to a dramatic river lookout.

After your hike, arrive at the preserve’s Hudson River Greenway Water Trail site in time for lunch beneath its pavilion.

But where are the meadows? They’re underwater. Farmers once brought their cattle here to feast on plants growing in the offshore tidal flats.

  • Fishing
  • Hiking
  • Kayaking
  • Canoeing
  • Picnicking
  • Wildlife watching
  • Cross country skiing & snowshoeing
