Hyde Park Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Our nation’s only four- term president left us this uncommonly lovely woodland and the carriage roads that bring us to its verdant heart. His wealthy neighbors preserved an equally fine natural oasis.
For national park units per square mile, Hyde Park rivals Washington, DC, in its work to preserve important slices of American history. Here the lives of several of the wealthiest families in the nation played out during the late 1800s and the first half of the twentieth century, as they applied some of the Vanderbilts’ railroad money and the Roosevelts’ financial legacy to cultivate the natural areas we see today."
