Westchester Wilderness Walk Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Some trails naturally overlap animal paths or ancient forest roads, while others are created from scratch to showcase the wilds with a minimum impact. This hike takes a third approach, playfully, artistically, and circuitously winding around old walls and glacial erratics, through an attractive blend of hardwood highlands (complete with craggy bluffs) and soggy lowlands, where stepping-stone staircases draw visitors into the middle of streams and cascades."

The park itself is a nice place for families to hang with children where they can play, barbecue, and swim. We found the trail to be littered with garbage, not in good walking condition, trees were over run with vines that could have been cut back and maintained better, and the buildings on the site were run-down and not very attractive. The view of the Hudson River along the shoreline was the only nice part of the walk... I would not recommend this trail unless you were already at the park for another event.
