"Get up close and personal with wildlife at this delightful little nature preserve. Tucked into the hills east of Ossining, Teatown Lake Reservation offers something uncommon among hiking destinations the chance to preview your hike in 3-D (without having to put on those bothersome glasses). Inside the impressive Tudor-style house next to the parking lot that serves as its visitor center and headquarters, there’s a gift shop where you can get a free black-and-white trail map or buy a color version for $2. Across from the counter, in a plastic display case, is a wooden relief model of the map showing everything. You can see where you’ll be going, and how much climbing you’ll be doing, on this loop around the lake and up the hill." Read more

"A lake with an island devoted to wildflowers, a couple of streams, and a number of boardwalks and bridges make this a can’t-miss for family outings. The wild-at-heart should beat a path to the forested hillsides, too, where granite outcroppings, bogs, and meadows round out this diverse park. Teatown is crosscut by numerous paths, including a stretch of the Briarcliff– Peekskill Trail, so you can create as long or short a hike as fits your time or energy." Read more

"Quiet in the midst of suburban hubbub, this walk through a natural area will soothe your city- weary senses. Back in 1776, on the eve of the Revolutionary War, a man named John Arthur saw an opportunity to capitalize on the scarcity of tea in the area north of New York City. Since the Boston Tea Party in 1775, when patriots dumped an entire shipment of tea into Boston Harbor to protest high taxation, England had held back its tea exports, leaving Americans to scramble to find some or go without. Arthur had somehow come by a chest of tea, perhaps horded since the tea crisis began." Read more
