This unique 161-acre preserve is located partially within both the village and town of Saugerties, punctuated by a dramatic bend in the Esopus Creek less than a mile from the Hudson River.
 

Esopus Bend has not been used for agriculture in 40 and has transformed back to a natural ecosystem teeming with a wide array of flora and fauna. The diverse landscape offers lowland meadows, state-designated wetlands, sloping forests and a flood plain forest.
 
 
The preserve is open to the public from dawn to dusk and features hiking trails. Activities offered include guided nature walks, birding field trips, kayak and canoe tours of the preserve’s shoreline, butterfly walks, animal tracking adventures and more.
