Snowshoe/ hike on Peebles Island


Peebles Island State Park is at the confluence of the Hudson and Mohawk Rivers. It offers spectacular river and rapids views for walkers and joggers who take advantage of the miles of paths through the gently rolling and wooded landscape. Picnickers and fishermen come to relax and winter visitors use the facilities to cross-country ski, hike and snowshoe.

Peebles Island is also the headquarters of the Bureau of Historic Sites and Bureau of Historic Preservation Field Services. The staff provide technical services, such as record maintenance, analysis of artifacts, and preparation of publications, exhibits and audio visual programs for the 35 historic sites maintained by State Parks. The Field Services Bureau assists all New York's municipalities and citizens with National Register of Historic Place listings, investment tax credit and review of all state and federal projects.

    Fantastic. Beautiful weather, great companions and it was wonderful to have Seth as one of our guides. His extensive knowledge of Peebles and the surrounding area(s) added tremendously to the outing. Thank you Seth and of course, as always, thank you Betsy!

      Too many cancellations is good-when you are on the waitlist AND you are notified in time instead of minutes before the event!

    Betsy, will you be sticking to trails on this hike or going off trail with snowshoes? I haven't gotten my snowshoes yet and was wondering if my hikers with spikes would be ok?

    February 7, 2014

    • seth

      Terri, we'll be sticking to trails so hikers with spikes should be fine even if we get a few inches tonight. I'm bringing snowshoes as well but mostly out of habit, it never hurts to bring everything and make the call once you're there!

      February 8, 2014

  • Karla

    Does anyone have a snow report for Peebles?
