Black Creek Preserve, Esopus NY

This is the sign on Route 9W in Esopus

This small park offers a short 2 mile loop that offers hemlock forests and a stop along the Hudson River.  Moderate trail for those who want to hike without too much difficulty (there are some steep areas and the trail can occasionally get rocky).

This is a good location for both traditional forest therapy walks and hybrid hikes with forest therapy.

NOTE: This is not the same as the Black Creek State Forest which is across street and just south of the Black Creek Preserve.

Location: Esopus, NY (Right off 9W on Winding Brook Road)
