A great “outdoor classroom” for presenting kids to nature.

ESOPUS, Ulster County (130 acres) — For a family-friendly hike, you can’t beat Babsence Creek Preserve. Yes, the steep uphill climb at the start may make the under-10 contingent groan, yet they’ll love crossing the suspension bridge that spans the creek and also skipping stones on the Hudson River coastline. In in between, have them watch out for wildlife — from blueback herring, which journey from the ocean to deposit their eggs in Black Creek, to bald eagles.

Free and open year-round, sunincrease to sunset.
