Hiking Trails

Closed until spring 2024

In addition to the manicured gardens around the mansion, the Locust Grove Estate includes nearly five miles of carriage roads, laid out in the 19th century, that wind through the forest and meadows along the Hudson River.  Enjoy great river views on the Sawmill Trail, the waterfall on the Cascade Trail, or the shady Lane Loop.

Please note that the walking paths can be uneven and include several steep hills – be prepared for a moderate to strenuous hike.
