The Thomas Cole National Historic Site invites you to join them on a Hudson River School Art Trail hikes. These guided hikes go to the painting sites of the 19th-century artist Thomas Cole and his contemporaries including Frederic Church, Jasper Cropsey, Sanford Gifford, and Asher B. Durand. Participants will be able to see the same views that appear in famous landscape paintings and will have the fun of comparing the painted and actual views. The 19th-century artists hiked, sketched and painted in the region surrounding Thomas Cole's home.
