  • The park is created from land originally bought by JD Rockefeller so as not to spoil the view from his estate across the river. The view of the Hudson and the drive on the Parkway in the fall is breathtaking.
  • Doesn't get much better than this in the area for a hike and scenic views. Good parking and great trails!
  • Great vantage point to watch over the Hudson River and to see lower Westchester County and northern Manhattan. Great place to watch fall hawk migration in late September/October/early November.
  • I come here to hike a the giants stairs all the time. The view is just suburbs of the city, nothing special. But there's a good 2 hour hike to be had. If you're doing the giant stairs loop, do yourself a favor and go down the stairs first. Otherwise you'll be climbing those stairs at the end of your hike. The climb from the New York side is gentler. And get a burger from the snack bar, they're good.
  • Great public park with loads of hiking. Bring good shoes, your phone (camera) and some water.
