Eleanor’s Walk and Top Cottage Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Hike through the forest planted on orders from President Franklin Roosevelt, and follow the swath cut by the twentieth century’s strongest and most influential First Lady. It’s not every day that you can walk in the footsteps of a First Lady of the United States, so we urge you to seize the opportunity here at Val-Kill.

This is the cottage at which Eleanor Roosevelt, wife of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, pursued her many humanitarian causes and entertained world leaders who came to pay their respects at the grave of her husband."
