Taconic State Park: Copake Falls Area. Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"On the eastern edge of the Hudson Valley, hugging the borders of Massachusetts and Connecticut, Taconic State Park stretches for nearly 15 miles along a thin stretch of land in the Taconic Mountains, broken only occasionally by privately held property. There are two separate campgrounds in Taconic State Park. On its southern end is the Rudd Pond Area, which consists of a narrow lake and an even narrower clearing with compact camping sites. The campground’s open field seems more like an afterthought, and in stark contrast to the nicely shaded campground found at the Copake Falls Area on the park’s northern end. For exploring the region, Copake Falls is the clear choice among places to pitch a tent."
