paths west near river

Two of the many paths in the woods extending north as far as Quiet Cove, the park developed from the lower portion of the Hudson River State Hospital.  There are many trails that give the pedestrian a variety of views. This picture was taken in March 2009 with the river clearly visible.  Normally during the summer months the river is shrouded from the viewer, except for two special lookouts along the path on the left of this photo. 

When winter comes, the paths remain open allowing different adventure minus autos, skidoos, etc. So it's a nature walk.  Do the words tranquil and serene come to mind?
