  • I used to go every weekend, not as frequently anymore but it is a wonderful place to go hiking, many clearly marked trails good for all levels of hiking, well maintained, 10 minutes from home. A gem.

  • One of the best spots for hiking around. It offers a variety of trails for different levels of challenge and intensity. It has some interesting ruins spread throughout in case you are up for that type of exploring. Some really great views of NYC from a distance (has to be a clear day) and of the surroundings valley. Parking is sometimes be an issue at the main entrance so I opt to enter from Skyline Drive. This is also a good place for someone training for a trail run.
  • One of my favorite places to hike. Cannonball trail has some excellent views. Van Slyke Trail is phenomenal. Recommend everyone check it out. There are no bathroom facilities at these trails! Please pack out your trash!
  • Best place to hike in the area... a lot of trails and parking spots...
  • Love this park, lots of long trails, and restful lake/pond to sit and medidate. Manor ruins and an ancient water tower are just some of the sites to see.
  • On the Red (Overlook) Trail. Tough hills, nice views. Ruffed Grouse habitat...haven't seen any today.
