Report: This park is a gem. We stayed in a very comfortable cabin overlooking the Hudson and found a wonderful trail that, pound for pound, is one of the nicest I've ever been on. It's an easy hour-or-less jaunt each way, but you have a constant view of the river -- occasionally descending to little coves and beaches -- and there's several striking points of interest, including an old monastery on the opposite bank, a quaint lighthouse in one inlet and a historic mansion at the northern terminus. Don't know why it doesn't get more press! Go there, make it a part of a trip to Hyde Park, Beacon, etc., and you won't be disappointed.
