The Hudson River School Art Trail is a project to map the painting sites of the artists Thomas Cole, founder of the Hudson River School, Frederic Church, one of the most accomplished painters of the movement, and their contemporaries including Asher B. Durand, Sanford Gifford and Jasper Cropsey. This website includes everything you need to plan your visit to one or more of these remarkable sites where one can still see the views that appear in 19th-century landscape paintings.
The Hudson River School Art Trail is divided into several large geographic areas. From this website's homepage, choose which area you wish to explore. The Hudson River Valley area has the largest number of stops while the others are currently less developed.
