The 687 acre Tallman Mountain State Park is located on the easterly slope of the Palisades uplands overlooking the Hudson and Piermont Marsh, which lies between the Hudson River and the slope. The marsh is part of the Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve.

The park is located between the hamlet of Palisades and the Village of Piermont.  Along the Long Path to the north is the Village of Piermont with many interesting crafts shops, art galleries and restaurants. For more information on this park, check out the NY State Parks website.

Two north-south trails extend the length of the park, the Long Path and the Tallman Bike Path. These two trails may be combined to create loop hikes from  2.5 to 5 miles.  Check out the The Long Path Guide for more on hiking the Long Path.  Check out Hudson Palisades Trails Map for a map of the trails in the park as well as other trails in the area.

Here's a popular hike located in the park according to the NY-NJ Trail Conference website:

Directions:  The main entrance to the park is on the east side of US 9W, 1.3 miles north of its intersection with Oak Tree Road/Washington Spring Road. The trails may also be accessed from the southern entrance to the park, located on the east side of US 9W, 0.3 mile north of this intersection (this parking area is not marked with a park sign). You can also enter the park on foot from Piermont.
