This stunningly diverse 192-acre preserve features wooded shoreline, picturesque streams, dramatic waterfalls, meadows, wetlands, and more than a mile Hudson River waterfront. These natural features are showcased by a trail network including a mile-long riverside footpath with breathtaking views of the Hudson River, a gravel road with views of the Catskills, and an old carriage road leading to the river’s edge. The creation of Falling Waters Preserve is the result of a unique collaboration, and ECC is proud to be part of this effort. The Dominican Sisters, who own the property, generously granted Scenic Hudson an easement on the land and agreed to allow public access to a portion of it. Scenic Hudson planners worked with the Sisters and the ECC to improve an existing riverside trail system while protecting the Sisters’ privacy. New trails were constructed and will be maintained by Scenic Hudson and ECC.
