Introduce Your Children To Nature At Esopus Meadows Preserve

via Get Fit Hudson Valley

Esopus Meadows Preserve is a 96 acre park that offers a great place for introducing children to the glories of nature along the Hudson River. Four trails totaling 2 miles allow you to tailor a trek to the stamina of young legs. Begin by hiking through a forest alive with birdcalls and a gurgling stream, or follow the shoreline to a dramatic lookout. Whichever route you choose, on the midpoint of your outing you’ll arrive at a pavilion and tables perfect for a rest and a picnic.

Enjoy the views—Esopus Meadows Lighthouse looms in the distance downriver, while grand Mills Mansion is slightly to the left across the Hudson. The park is also one of our 80+ workout locations for the challenge!
