Beautiful trail
Nov 2020 • Couples
Wonderful short trail on or almost on the banks of the Hudson River. I recommend you start on the red trail (0.89 mi); it goes up at the beginning and then it's mostly flat, with gravel like a small road meandering through the woods. You get glimpses of the river through the trees. At the end, a small waterfall, mostly a stream jumping down from stone to stone, with a nice bench where you can relax and listen to the water's "song". Then you can go down to come back on the white trail (0.65 mi) which is a little more challenging with several ups and downs, or turn around on the red trail. At this time in the fall, the leaves can be slippery. You need to be careful how you step, but the payout is big: you get to go down to the water edge, see the river panorama and enjoy great views. The whole loop took about an hour; we wished we would have stopped more and longer to just relax and see the forest.

WOW
Sep 2020
Beautiful walk. The uphill of the red trail was hard for me a couch potato but others were zipping up it. There are some benches. Wished there were more. The small waterfall was serene. I sat there and read for an hour. Sorry I didn't have my journal with me. Took the white trail back. It was shorter and more scenic - along the Hudson river but more challenging as it was a path and not the gravel road of the red path. My only complaint is that there were no bathrooms - even portapotties at the beginning of the trail. I had to leave and didn't get to eat my lunch there.

A short trail leads you to the bank of the Hudson River.
Along the way a trickle of water falls across the rocks but it is currently under repair with heavy equipment used to redirect the stream.

Short hike with really nice falls!
Aug 2020
We visited Falling Waters Preserve on a Sunday. There's a small parking lot (for approx 12 cars); however, since the hiking trails are short, people go in and leave fast. Please note; there's no public restrooms; so in case you want to spend some time there by the waterfalls, you will have to use the restroom before you get to the this place.
We really enjoyed our walk and sitting by the falls; very relaxing and peaceful that we decided to have our lunch there.
The views to the Hudson River are not as spectacular as described. You can see the river when you complete the longest trail (red trail), but there's no way to get in the water, not even your feet as it is very muddy.
If you're looking for a brief relaxing walk and spend some time in contact with nature, you should consider this spot.

Beautiful Place

This is a beautiful place to hike. Trails are all clearly marked, preserve is well maintained with several beautiful wood benches. If I am ever in the area again, I would definitely go back.

Beautiful Easy Walk

Just had a few minutes before heading out of town. Wanted to take in the Hudson, and walk the dog. This was a perfect spot for both.

Beautiful views

This is a relatively easy hike with a beautiful view of the Hudson, varied terrain, and waterfalls alongside the trail. A few steep uphill and downhill climbs on the white trail might be difficult for those with any physical limitations; the upper red trail is easier to navigate.

Wonderful walk
Oct 2019
We were going to be in the Saugerties area for a few days and was looking for an opportunity to visit the shores of the Hudson River. I found this place online and was happy I did. Nice easy stroll through the forest and along the banks of the river. There was even a waterfall. Easy trails to follow and hike. Thanks to the organizations who are the stewards of this place.

A Delightful Flat Walk along the west side of the Scenic Hudson River
Oct 2019 • Couples
Glimpse of the Catskills, Farm and Field, Woods, a Meandering Stream , Two waterfalls , a wide well maintained flat pebbly trail and continuous views along the bank of the Hudson River all rolled into one. The place has it’s own parking lot steps away from an easy to follow ‘loop of a trail’ . Trick is to take Joseph Street, a direct route in Glasco ( right off Route 32 ) to get there.
