Nature Conservancy's Neversink River Preserve
Nature Conservancy's Neversink River Preserve

Godeffroy, NY - 550 acres of color-coded hiking trails. Within walking distance from KOA (0.3 miles!).

From their website:
"Just two hours from New York City, the Neversink River is a pristine ecological jewel — 60 miles of rushing waters brimming with an outstanding array of life. Theodore Gordon, considered the father of modern American fly fishing, perfected his dry-fly techniques here in the 1800s.

Along this spectacular river lies the Neversink River Preserve which includes one of the most outstanding examples of a large intact floodplain forest in New York. Floodplain forests provide important wildlife habitat and allow for species movement which is especially important in the face of climate change. Floodplains can absorb flood waters and reduce the severity of floods, filter water pollution and reduce stormwater runoff. "
