This Tour is a short walking tour of the Fern Tor Nature Preserve located on the north end of Marist Colleges campus. Today, Fern Tor is a 12 or 13-acre nature preserve on the North end of Campus that stretches from the St. Ann’s parking lot to Quiet Cove Park in Poughkeepsie and encompasses the land between the Hudson River and Route Nine. Many different people had owned the land before Marist college purchased the property in 1997, but all of them have changed the property in ways that still can be seen today. This walking tour will take approximately 15 mins and will have some minor changes in elevation. There are clean trails but no may be unstable ground, so remember to watch your step and pay attention to where you are going.
