|Park Description:|| |
A former estate on the Hudson renovated and revived by The Open Space Institute and Scenic Hudson. The mansion is not open to the public, but four miles of surrounding carriage roads and trails are open and scenic.
|Trails Overview:|| |
There are 2 distinct trail systems. One is a loop of a mile on the point. This trail may be treacherous in winter because of sheer drops over the Hudson. The other is primarily through hemlock forest.
Head north 1.8 miles from Bear Mountain Bridge on 9D. Turn left on Mystery Point Rd. Parking and trailhead are on the left.
Metro-North has Hudson Line service to Manitou Station on a limited basis, primarily weekends. Check their schedule. From the station, proceed east on Manitou Station Road for 0.1 mile, then turn left and pass between stone pillars with a white gate onto a dirt road that runs along the southeast edge of Manitou Marsh.
