Winnakee Nature Preserve, Hyde Park NY
This is an easy system of well-maintained trails with a great variety of trees. Hiking the main trails would take around an hour so this location is great for mindfulness walks with a mix of forest therapy.
Location: At the beginning of Vandam Road, right off Route 9. (Parking behind the florist at 4204 Route 9, Hyde Park, NY) There are other points of access with parking but this is the one we use.
