Denton Wildlife Sanctuary is located on the east side of the Hudson River, just north of Schuylerville along Rt. 4 in the Town of Greenwich, Washington County. The preserve offers visitors two loop trails totaling a little over 2 miles. The terrain is easy with some ups and downs but little overall change in elevation.
Historic cultural features include imported limestone blocks lining sections of the abandoned old Champlain Canal, and the faint outline of an abandoned electric trolley line that once ran from Troy to Lake George. Denton Sanctuary is open to the public, year-round from dawn to dusk. Hiking, nature study, bird watching, and snowshoeing are permitted. Visitors may not camp, picnic, collect or disturb plants or wildlife, and no vehicles are allowed.
