  • Enjoyed the hiking trails, great views and some elevation changes. Had some issues following the map and tree markings. Didn't get too lost and our phone GPS was working!  more »
  • Just visited the reservation this past Saturday and the leaves were gorgeous. There are a number of parks and reservations in the Westchester/Fairfield County Area, but this one surpasses all of them....  more »
  • This is a really gorgeous park. It may be the best in Westchester County! The variety of vegetation and terrain is the key feature of this park. I went hiking with a friend shortly after an ice breakup on the Cross River. It was very interesting to see all the large blocks of ice that were getting pushed around and out of the river. From what I have seen of this park, it does not have the steep climbs that hardcore hikers tend to favor. It does though have a great variety of trails and should be on the must hike list of trekkers of all levels.
  • The campsites with lean-tos are perfect for fall, winter, and spring camping. Actually, they’re perfect for summer camping too.
  • 4300 acres of wilderness, Meadows and rocks. 35 miles of trail with a great little nature museum.
  • Great place in Westchester County to go hiking. The rock formations are some of the best that I have seen.
  • Very well marked trails. Nice enough park but parking is too expensive for regular use. Parking fees: $5 with Park Pass, $10 without Park Pass -- daily May through mid-Oct; weekends only mid-Oct. through mid-May.
