Sept. 2017; Please Note:

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Red Trail is closed at Point D. As it has for many years, the trail beyond Point D crosses over private property for about 350 yards before continuing back on to Mianus River Gorge Preserve land. Unfortunately, the property owner has decided to suspend this privilege necessitating closure of the trail. Mianus River Gorge sincerely regrets the imposition this causes visitors anticipating a hike to the end of the trail at the Bargh Reservoir. Please be assured that we are working diligently to provide visitors with the best possible hiking experience.

 

Mianus River Gorge Preserve is open April 1 through November 30 from 8:30am until 5pm.  Although it is free to hike our trails, all groups of 20 or more must register in advance. Please contact our office at (914) 234-3455 or email Rod Christie for reservations. Temporary closures may occur in the case of flooding or extended drought. Please call ahead during these conditions.

Our trails are open only to hiking. We do not allow dogs or other pets (even on leash), bicycles, or powered vehicles of any kind.  While we understand this can be an inconvenience, the rewards are many. Our hiking paths are narrow and winding, well kept, yet rugged. Visitors have the experience of a remote wilderness within an hour’s drive from one of the world’s largest cities. It is important that we maintain this experience for all our visitors.

Our address: Entrance to the Preserve is across the street from 167 Mianus River Road, Bedford, NY  10506
