Traversing the Gorge - New Project Launches

In 2017 public access to most of the Mianus River Gorge's landmark sites was lost due to a property dispute. The result of this closure resulted in a complete cut off to most of the preserves iconic sites including the Gorge Overlook, Havemeyer Falls (pictured above), and Bargh Reservoir. In order to regain access a new link via the Old Growth Forest trail must be constructed in very challenging terrain across a steep scree slope utilizing extensive sections of stone retaining walls and staircases. Once completed, access would be restored to the 10,000+ visitors the preserve sees every year.
