NY: Hudson Valley- Garrison-Boscobel House & Gardens

I learned of Boscobel from my cousin as an awesome venue to see Shakespeare performances in a beautiful outdoor landscape on the Hudson.

A recent trip to Boscobel surprised me as it turned out to host a farmers market on Saturdays so I had a lovely last minute picnic with fresh kalamata olive bread and mozzarella.

It was such a beautiful day I thought how perfect and then I reviewed the trail map. Well there’s a woodland walk. Ok I may be in a dress but how aggressive could it be here? Mmmm 🙂

I loved the rustic fencing, walks and gazebos found upon entry.

Suddenly I see they’re connected to Constitution Marsh! Its a steep climb downhill to get there but you’re rewarded with the falls and beautiful views of the highlands.

I wound up doing a two mile hike to include a rock scramble in a dress to see a portion of the upper part of Indians Brook waterfall. It seems I didn’t hike far enough for the full experience. But heck not so bad for an old lady in a long wrap dress!

A magical day! — at Boscobel House and Gardens. You do need reservations so I’ve included the link below as well as a picture of their trail map. Oh and as tempted as you may be you can’t pick the apples!
