This 1.1 mile self-guided loop trail showcases many of the important native, naturalized, and invasive plants that give the Hudson Valley its character. Take time to learn to identify the species around you and to understand the unique contributions they make to our landscape.

Winnakee Nature Preserve is part of what once was the Crumwold Estate of Archibald Rogers, renowned sportsman and Roosevelt family friend. In his youth, Franklin Roosevelt worked with Rogers to manage the estate's forests. Rogers' dedication to 'modern' sustainable forestry inspired President Roosevelt's lifelong interest in forestry and his creation of the Civilian Conservation Corps tree plantations.

The Arboretum loop trail traverses level carriage roads, rolling hills, and sections of moderately steep, rocky terrain.
