Description

Mohawk Landing, a beautiful six-acre riverfront park, opened in 2009 near Riverview Orchards on Riverview Road in Rexford (Clifton Park), NY. The park includes a gravel and wooden boardwalk trail that runs across the property to the top of the riverbank. The scenic overlook includes several picnic tables.

Though there is is a small boat access point to the Mohawk River, there are both natural and stone dust trails through the beautiful wooded area. Visitors can enjoy both a boardwalk trail or a meadow loop.

This is the perfect spot for a picnic, casual walk along trails or to sit and enjoy the view of the Mohawk River.
