Sal J. Prezioso Mountain Lakes Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Five small lakes, 8.4 miles of hiking trails, and 982-foot Mount Bailey, the highest point in Westchester County, all comfortably fit into this 1,082-acre park along the Connecticut state line. The advantage of this location is that serenity is all but guaranteed. Camping here is somewhat primitive, with lean-to sites (single and double) scattered along a semicircular gravel road. A grill, campfire ring, picnic table, and pit toilet accompany each of the eight simple wooden shelters. The park office at the entrance has flush toilets. Individual yurts as well as two cabins (also with flush toilets) capable of accommodating four people can be rented at a higher rate. Depending on the season, rowboats can be used on both Hemlock and Spruce Lake. Swimming within Mountain Lakes Park is prohibited, however."
