Poets' Walk Park celebrates the connection between landscape and poetry. The park's mown and gravel paths provide access to the 120 acres of fields and forest.

Poets' Walk reflects the 19th century American landscape design. The extraordinary vistas, sunlit fields and thick forest are the product of over two hundred years of human manipulation of the landscape. From the early tenant farmers to the deliberate landscaping of Hans Jacob Ehlers, these activities have left us with a series of "outdoor rooms", each framed by walls of foliage, a rise in the field, and breaks in the stone walls. Today, the visual integrity of the Park and its setting is protected by The Scenic Hudson Land Trust's conservation easements on the surrounding 800 acres.

You are invited to enjoy the sweeping vistas from the Park's paths of fields and ravines that speak to you and the poet in you. Take a moment to sit on a bench, read a poem, or better still, scribe a line or two of your own.

The distance from the Information Arbor to the Overlook Pavilion is about 1/2 mile and at a leisurely pace takes the average walker about 15 minutes. The return trip is slightly uphill and a bit longer.

From the Pavilion to the Summerhouse via Poets' Walk Path is an additional 20 minutes (one way); and from the Pavilion to the Flagpole Lot is also 20 minutes (one way.)

The Park is open from 9am to dusk. Please be considerate of other visitors and the adjoining property owners. Please carry out anything you carry in -- there are no trash receptacles. Please leash and clean up after your dog.

Hours of Operation
Open 9am till dusk.
