Get to Greenport!


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.

Greenport Conservation Area is part of 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. We pay honor and respect to their ancestors past and present as we commit to building a more inclusive and equitable space for all. 

We pay honor and respect to the ancestors past and present of the Schagticoke First Nations. The Schaghticoke are Indigenous Peoples whose ancestral homelands extend throughout the Hudson and Harlem Valley regions of New York State and western Connecticut. As a result of tragic massacres, land grabs, and forcible removals, there is currently no central gathering place for them to call their own. 

The outdoors is for everyone.

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