• Bob Shepard Highland Landing Park

Right along the Hudson River, the hamlet of Highland (in the town of Lloyd) is a great place to stop and relax as you explore the area’s extensive trails and scenic parks, right in the center of Ulster County’s agricultural heritage. A diverse and accommodating place to visit, Highland boasts the Walkway Over the Hudson (the world’s longest pedestrian bridge), welcoming bed and breakfasts in historic homes, family-friendly fun at Rocking Horse Ranch Resort, wineries, apple orchards, parks, nature preserves and trails. 

In addition, Bad Seed Cider Co. offers tours and a huge cider tap room. There is also Bob Shepard Highland Landing Park and Franny Reese State Park, both bordering the Hudson River. Highland is only a short trip from New York City by train, bus or car, yet it offers endless possibilities for enjoying all that nature and a vibrant community has to offer.
