Cabrini Woods Nature Sanctuary is a small but vibrant woodland located at the southwest corner of Fort Tryon Park and is one of the best uptown spots to look for birds and take in sweeping views of the Hudson River and Palisades. The woodland is connected to the other last remaining forested parklands along the Hudson River — Fort Washington Park and Inwood Hill Park in Manhattan and Riverdale Park in the Bronx. Bordered on two sides by roadways, it is an urban forest in transition.
