Mongaup River Trail - Sparrow Bush, NY

The linear trail provides a moderate hike with abundant opportunities to view eagles and waterfowl. Large Eastern Hemlocks trees tower overhead and shade this steep ravine landscape. Closed from 12/1 – 4/1.  

The trail is located just south of the Mongaup River on Route 97. Look for a small pull off with a bulletin board.
