John Burroughs Nature Center
The John Burroughs Nature Sanctuary is a pristine and rugged 200 acre oasis set in the Mid-Hudson River Valley.
There is a four and a half mile network of trails, including five that are newly constructed. They are rated easy to moderate and take you among rocky ridges, deep forests, and onto a peninsula in a stunning two-acre pond enabling you to experience the same forest, geologic formations, waterfalls, fern valleys, wildflowers, birds, and wildlife that Burroughs reveled in over a hundred years ago.
Trail features include a 55-step stone stairway, boardwalks (one through Burroughs’ former celery swamp), and a ladder up a cliff.
