Olana State Historic Site Professional Review and Guide

"Walk in the footsteps of some of America’s most celebrated artists and see the view that inspired the Hudson River School of painting.

An energetic walk through the grounds of this nineteenth-centur y mansion provides some of the most stunning views of the Hudson River that you can find anywhere along the waterway’s length. Each bend in the trail reveals another sweeping landscape with the river in the background, and even the crush of modern development and technology cannot mar the view enough to discourage you from enjoying these expanses. In addition, the path takes you through the well- maintained and carefully selected plantings in Olana’s lovely gardens, displaying a variety of native flowers as well as some beautiful and unusual exotic plants.

As if all of this loveliness were not enough to make this a worthwhile hike, your exploration of Olana provides a 343-foot change in elevation, making this an excellent cardio hike as well as one that will make you want to linger."
