Activities

The Meadowlands Liberty Region, known widely for its sports complex, industry and maze of roadways. Directly across from Manhattan, the region's natural borders comprise the Hudson River and the Hackensack River, which makes it home to acres of trails, estuaries, and protected marshlands. Explore the land with guided tours, miles of trails for biking, hiking and walking on dozens of county and state parks. If you love the water, explore the fishing, boating, canoeing and kayak rides!

Hudson River

The Hudson River is a 315-mile (507 km) watercourse that flows from north to south primarily through eastern New York State in the United States . The river originates at Henderson Lake in Newcomb, New York , in the Adirondack Park, flowing southward past the state capital at Albany, and eventually forming the boundary between New York City and the U.S. state of New Jersey at its mouth, before emptying into Upper New York Bay.

Fishing

Fishing & Crabbing are permitted along the seawalls and shoreline of the Hudson River within the park, anywhere signs are not posted prohibiting these activities, including our riverfront picnic areas and along the length of the Shore Trail (trails are “carry in–carry out” — all trash must be carried back out with you and disposed of properly). Bait is not sold in the park.

Licenses are not required, but New Jersey State fishing regulations are in effect and enforced, and anyone over the age of 16 must hold a New Jersey Saltwater Registry permit.

Common species caught along the Palisades include catfish, striped bass, white perch, tomcod, eels, and blue-claw crabs.

Hudson River Fishing Association

The Hudson River Fishermen's Association is a group of recreational fishermen who make active use of the N.Y. Bight and the surrounding water system and are concerned with the present and future state of these fisheries. Our objectives are to encourage the responsible use of aquatic resources and protection of habitat. We assist where possible in efforts to abate pollution and promote sportfishing and the management of that recreation. We are a IRS recognized nonprofit 501c3 organization . All donations are welcome and maybe tax deductable.

Hudson River Walkway

The Hudson River Waterfront Walkway is a spectacular pathway on the western shore of the Hudson River in New Jersey. The state has planned the Walkway to exist immediately adjacent to the river in a continuously connected 30 foot wide path from the tip of Bayonne to the George Washington Bridge. The Walkway provides free access 24/7 for the enjoyment of the general public.

Hackensack River, New Jersey

The Hackensack River is a river, approximately 45 miles (72 km) long, in the U.S. states of New York and New Jersey , emptying into Newark Bay , a back chamber of New York Harbor . The watershed of the river includes part of the suburban area outside New York City just west of the lower Hudson River , which it roughly parallels, separated from it by the New Jersey Palisades . It also flows through and drains the New Jersey Meadowlands . The lower river, which is navigable as far as the city of Hackensack , is heavily industrialized and forms a commercial extension of Newark Bay. Once believed to be the among the most polluted water courses in the United States, it has staged a modest revival by the late 2000s.

Since then more than 25,000 people have traveled with us. Eco-Cruises generally take between 2 and 2 1/2 hours and are fully narrated by a US Coast Guard-licensed Captain.
