Welcome to Greenport

Greenport Conservation Area is a great place for a walk. You don’t need any special gear to take advantage of more than seven miles of trails, though we do suggest bringing water and snacks, wearing sunscreen, and checking for ticks! Most of the trails are flat, and there are plenty of shortcuts for turning around and heading back to the parking lot if you decide your day is done.

It is with gratitude and humility that we acknowledge Greenport Conservation Area is located on the ancestral homelands of the Mohican people, who are the Indigenous peoples of this land. Despite tremendous hardship in being forced from here, today their community resides in Wisconsin and is known as the Stockbridge-Munsee Community.

This land is near the homelands of other Indigenous peoples and First Nations, including the Schaghticoke First Nations. Indigenous peoples continue efforts to steward the land today. We pay honor and respect to their ancestors past and present as we commit to building a more inclusive and equitable space for all.

The outdoors is for everyone

If you experience discrimination or harassment while hiking, please let CLC know.
