Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Explore the varied terrain of one of the metropolitan area’s largest county parks. Tucked into Westchester County’s western corner, Ward Pound Ridge Reservation is a popular destination for picnickers and hikers alike. The former have some lovely areas in the center of the park just off the entrance road; the latter have more than 35 miles of trails, some shared with horses. At 4,315 acres, Pound Ridge Reservation (as it’s usually called, since it’s mostly in that town; William Ward was the county official who spearheaded the acquisition of the land) is not only the largest park in Westchester; it’s the largest county park in the New York metropolitan area. The northern third of the park is more heavily hiked; the southern two-thirds, which still retain a wilderness feel in parts, are where this hike will take you."
