A visit back in time and a great hike all in one. Scenic Hudson has done a great job interpreting the foundry site and making it accessible to all. Come and enjoy the rustic charm of the past at the banks of the Hudson River.

Thoughtfully-produced historical exhibits--just the right amount to make you feel like you can tell the story after you've visited.

This place was the perfect tonic after two days of traffic congestion throughout the Hudson Valley. It truly is a hidden gem. We planned to visit the Perkins Tower at Bear Mountain first and then head to the foundry preserve. The tower drive was closed...More

This was a nice short walk in the woods. Walls of old buildings, and even an old building are still standing where the foundry existed. As you walk through the paths, there glimpses of the old foundations and pieces of the old wall. There are...More
