THE garrison SCHOOL FOREST
The Garrison Union Free School District is fortunate to own a 185-acre School Forest. The Osborn, Sloan, and Gunther families gave the land to the Garrison School for use as an outdoor educational laboratory for children. The land is located behind the school. It is bounded by Route 9D, Route 9, Route 403, and Snake Hill Road.
The School Forest contains seven trails that wind through woods, ravines, steep ledges, a swamp, a meadow, and the South Redoubt, a Revolutionary War fortification. We welcome hikers between dawn and dusk. Please review maps, visitor guidelines, the School Forest's history, and a proposal from Hudson Highlands Land Trust to preserve the School Forest in perpetuity.

PLEASE NOTE: All Garrison School Forest access points are private driveways. Please respect our neighbors' privacy and property.
