James Baird State Park is situated on farmland once owned by James Baird, a contractor and engineer whose firm constructed the Lincoln Memorial. In 1939 James Baird donated the 590 acres of land to New York State under the stipulation that it be known as James Baird State Park. Work began on the park and golf course in 1940 and the golf course was finished in 1948.

James Baird State Park has seven miles of trails.  The trails in the park are wide, well marked, easy to follow and fairly level.  Several loop hikes are possible. Trails are suitable for x-country skiing.  For a map of the trails check out the Park Trail Map.  For more information on this park check out the NY State Parks website.

Directions:  There are exits for the park directly off the Taconic Parkway, north of the intersection with NY 55.
