The Trails

Hudson Crossing Park features over two miles of walking trails along both the Champlain Canal and Hudson River. The NYS Canalway Trail and Empire State Trail systems also run directly through the park, connecting Hudson Crossing Park with hundreds of miles of multi-use trail systems throughout New York.


The Riverwalk Sensory Trail

Just off the parking lot you will find the entrance to the Riverwalk Sensory Trail. With informative signage, Hudson River overlooks, sculpture inspired by the natural surroundings, and leading to the Dix Bridge, visitors of all ages will enjoy exploring this stretch of trail.

Canalway Trail

Hudson Crossing Park is primarily located on Lock C5 Island, which was created with the digging of the The Champlain Canal. Today the Canal is alive and open to boaters during the warmer months, and as you walk along the Canalway Trails keep an eye out for boats, canoes, kayaks, and paddle boarders taking a similar journey along the waterway! 


Eagle Point Trail

Leading to the tip of the island, Hudson Crossing's Eagle Point Trail has a number of attractions. Hidden gardens, views of the original Schuylerville-Greenwich Trolley stone piers, and a meandering path that leads you to the grand finale: Eagle Point, and a stunning view of the Northumberland Dam.
