Location: Garrison
Distance: .6 mile, option to add Constitution Marsh
Skill Level: easy, good for little walkers
Elevation Gain: minimal
Type of Hike: out-and-back
Trail Condition: gravel road, wet rock
Wow Factor: 40′ waterfall
Note: you must park in a dedicated spot or risk being towed or ticketed

How to get there: From the intersection of 9D and 301, go south on 9D for just over one mile.  (You will pass Boscobel) turn right onto Indian Brook Road which is a dirt road.  You will see the turn for Warren Landing and at the intersection there is dedicated parking for about 8 cars if people all park correctly.  They have been known to tow or ticket people parked illegally.

127 Warren Landing Rd, Garrison, NY 10524

 

Summary: From the parking spot, head left up Indian Brook Road (not down the hill to the marsh).  You’ll go under the red 9D bridge.  Keep following until you see a gate and an old carriage road.  Go around the gate and follow the road as it swings around almost 180 on an interesting stone bridge.

Look for a green arrow sign pointing left where the trail (do not pass back under the bridge).  The path will actually becomes a trail.  It is narrow and some places require you to walk on rocks in the water to continue but in just a minute you will come upon the waterfall.  I don’t recommend taking little walkers after a heavy rain because the path will be flooded and waters fast.

Retrace your steps back to the car and if you want, keep going down hill to Constitution Marsh.
