Discover the Mystery of Manitou Point

Garrison – Featuring dramatic rock outcroppings that look out upon the Hudson River, Manitou Point Nature Preserve comprises more than 100 acres, all open to the public.

The nearly 4 miles of public hiking trails feature a waterfall and wind through the preserve’s densely wooded forests. A tidal marsh offers refuge to a variety of waterfowl and songbirds. This hike is good for all skill levels. Leashed dogs are welcome.

Formerly known as Mystery Point, Manitou Point was once owned by Edward Livingston, descendent of Philip Livingston, a signer of the Declaration of Independence.  Known as one of the Hudson River’s great early 20th-century estates, the property was sold several times before Open Space Institute stepped in and permanently protected this remarkable landscape.

Manitou Point is open daily from sunrise to sunset and is at 90 Mystery Point Road in Garrison.
