Poets' Walk is located in Red Hook, New York, United States on the River Road (just north of the Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge, New York State Route 199). It is intended to celebrate the connection between landscape and poetry. The classic wooden vistas, sunlit fields and thick forest were the main focus of landscape architect Hans Jacob Ehlers' vision for the property in 1849.

  • Tranquil escape off a side road in the hamlet of Red Hook. Lovely walking paths, even in winter. Beautiful rustic benches, Hudson River views from the hilltop. Said to be a favorite of Washington Irving and other local writers. Can't get more poetic than that.
  • Place is great. Awesome spot to tire the young ones out for a good nights' sleep. There is a lot of walking to do. Nice hiking trail that brings you down by the train tracks overlooking the Hudson. I must advice that the path to the right is NOT stroller friendly. I did it once, lucky the stroller I have is heavy duty and sturdy. Unlucky for me, it is also heavy. Never again. Makes for nice pics though.
