Exploring Constitution Marsh Garrison, NY

Diana Wandering Constitution Marsh

Another gem near Cold Spring is

Constitution Marsh Audubon Center & Sanctuary

This beautiful wildlife sanctuary and education center will be so beautiful in the spring.   We hiked the property and made some wonderful discoveries.

The sanctuary can be accessed by foot or water.  We took the land route, driving to the small parking area at 127 Warren Landing Road in Garrison. From there you walk down into the sanctuary.

Trail down to the Sanctuary

Here you will find the education center and trails that will lead you over a rise to the boardwalks in the marsh.
The path is a little rocky and steep at points. Walking to the Marsh
At the top there is a nice view of the Hudson River and West Point.

As we were leaving we noticed a red structure that looked like a sculpture over Indian Brook Road.   We walked closer we discovered it was the route 9D bridge.

There we found another path that lead to a striking waterfall.

It was a beautiful walk and we look forward to getting back in May and June.
