It’s all about birds and views.
STOCKPORT, Columbia County (6 acres) — After browsing through antiques shops in nearby Hudson, Harrier Hill Park offers the perfect counterpoint — nature at its most sublime. Its ridgetop location makes this a standout for savoring the grandeur of the Catskill Mountains. And don’t forget your binoculars: The surrounding meadows (also protected by Scenic Hudson) support a wide variety of birds, including the Northern harrier, the hawk for which the park is named. With grassland habitat vanishing at an alarming rate, it’s nice to know our feathered friends will always be welcome here.
Harrier Hill Park is owned by Scenic Hudson and co-managed with Columbia Land Conservancy.
Free and open year-round, sunrise to sunset.
