Wander down to the river through a historic farmstead.

NEW BALTIMORE, Greene County (76 acres) — The first thing that greets you upon entering the park is an old red barn, which attests to the land’s centuries-long incarnation as a farm. Today, a profusion of wildflowers bloom in the former pastures, attracting dragonflies, butterflies and birds — and humans eager for close-up connections with nature and the outstanding vistas of the far-off Berkshire Mountains that inspired the park’s name. The trail gradually descends to the Hudson shoreline, affording superb views up- and downriver. It’s not hard to see why Scenic Hudson protected this land.

The New Baltimore Conservancy created and manages the park.

Free and open year-round, dawn to dusk.
