    Originally, it was a Boy Scout camp nature museum at Lake Kanawauke in Harriman State Park. In 1927, Trailside Museums and Nature Trail was offficially established at Bear Mountain State Park through the Palisades Interstate Park Commission’s unique collaboration with theAmerican Association of Museums and the American Museum of Natural History. As the nation’s first self-guided nature trail, Trailside began with an innovative founding vision: the best way to learn about nature is to be in nature and the best way to enjoy nature is to have a friendly, knowledgeable voice as your guide.
