This moderate hike features four signature "view spots" and is led by Manitoga Landscape Site Educator. Russel Wright called these framed views osios from native Algonquin and intended them as dramatic moments within the landscape. Visit Boulder Osio, Mossy Overlook, Lost Pond Osio and Chestnut Oak Osio with stunning views of the Bear Mountain Bridge, West Point, Storm King Mountain, and the Hudson River north to Newburgh-Beacon Bridge. Reserve your spot at email@example.com. $5 suggested donation per person / children under 12 are free.
The 1.25 mile hike to Manitoga's highest point and return is moderate to intermediate with some steep terrain. Please wear appropriate walking shoes, dress for weather and carry water.
Meet at Manitoga's Visitor/Guide House next to the parking lot located at 584 Route 9D in Garrison, NY. You will be welcomed just before the tour begins. No pets please.
Manitoga's guided hikes do not include a tour of the House & Studio.
Hikes are not conducted in inclement weather.
Dogs are not allowed at Manitoga due to sensitive habitat. Manitoga has observed and determined that dogs, even on leash, threaten the character of the designedlandscape. Stepping stones through fern meadows, moss carpets, and ephemeral pools that provide habitat for sensitive species are vulnerable to dog traffic and waste. To fully respect and contemplate the design and nature of the trails, please leave your pets at home.
You are welcome to picnic while hiking but please carry in-carry out. Please help keep the paths clean.
