Piermont Marsh

Piermont Marsh protects over two miles of shoreline on the southern edge of the Village of Piermont. This thousand-acre site includes the mouth of Sparkill Creek and extensive tidal shallows, and is a critical resource for research and education as well as protecting all of the incredible recreation opportunities the shores of the Hudson have to offer.

Fish, crab, or watch birds off the mile-long Piermont Pier, or explore the Tallman Mountain path, part of the adjacent Tallman Mountain State Park. The path is open for hiking and biking, and skirts the edge of a rocky slope and high marsh before continuing out to the end of the pier for stunning views of the Hudson River and Palisades Ridge. Tallman Mountain State Park also offers public picnic areas and scenic overlooks with views of the marsh.

Piermont Marsh is one of four sites in the Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve.
