Walk the gentle trails along this beautifully landscaped park with stunning views and structures. 

The parking area offers a kiosk with maps.  At the kiosk you will see the main trail which will lead you 0.66 miles through open fields to the Overlook Pavillon.  From here you can sit, relax and enjoy the landscape.

From the pavilion you will continue shortly and reach a fork in the trail.  I chose to head left toward the old flagpole base.  Here there are benches to again take in the views.  You can see the Catskill Mountains and Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge.

As you continue on trail and enter the woods within a few minutes you will reach the Summer House (gazebo). This area is more secluded and quiet. 

Again continue on trail and you will cross over two bridges back to the pavilion.  Then walk the original 0.66 miles back out.

Many fun caches here to find if you enjoy geocaching!

Plenty of parking, not usually super crowded, easy family and dog friendly walks. Just make sure to clean up after family members, regardless of how many legs they have.

I hike to push my limits both mentally and physically, take in the beauty of the great outdoors, and just to get away from it all. Every chance I get you will find me in the mountains, on a kayak or ending my day by the campfire!

First and foremost, to get to this trailhead you need to drive down a 2-mile, one lane dirt road that is quite steep.
