NBC Trails

Hannacroix Creek Preserve

Take in the tranquility of New Baltimore by selecting a trail down to the Hudson River or up to the Falls. The HCP is made up of 133 acres and has 4 major trails, the LaVerne Irving, North, Red Loop and Paper Mill trails and a side spur that drops down along the ridge above the Hannacroix Creek from the LaVerne Irving, re-connecting to the LaVerne Irving as the trail cuts to the south, just above the creek.

Hudson River Interpretive Trail

Enjoy the tranquility of a 40 acre Hudson River estuary and cross the World’s First Recycled Bridge as you make your way to the Hudson River’s shores.

Long View Park

Wander down to the river through a historic farmstead. Scenic Hudson’s Long View Park property is 76 acres, part of the historic Bronk farm from the mid 19th century that was farmed through the mid 20th century.

Historic Hamlet

Visit the New Baltimore Hamlet Historic District to take an unforgettable stroll through a hidden architectural and historic masterpiece. The New Baltimore hamlet is one of the rare, intact examples of a Hudson River hamlet, retaining significant streetscapes, buildings, character, natural resources, and sense of community stemming from the 1790s to 1940s. The Hamlet boasts a rich, bustling history, showing off historic architectural styles including Federal, Greek Revival, Gothic Revival, Italianate, Queen Anne, Colonial, Revival, and Bungalow style residential, ecclesiastical, and civic buildings bounded by hundreds of acres of pristine open space and Hudson River estuaries. Take a self-guided tour or join us on one of our Historic Walking Tours.
