  • Outstanding and beautiful location for both easy and more challenging hikes. Recommend the twin lakes trail - low/medium difficulty for ~1.5 hours. Can easily fit in a number of other hikes into a day. The nature centre doesn't have a huge amount to buy though so suggest bringing own food supplies!
  • Excellent place to go for a quick and local hike. It's not very crowded, but if it does get crowded just keep walking and you'll easily escape the crowds. They also have a good area to see a number of birds they have.
  • Great nature hiking trails. You must not miss the northeastern natives Flower Island. To visit the Flower Island, you must call in advance. Otherwise just visit. Wear comfortable walking shoes... and be ready to enjoy nature. A calendar full of activities for children and adults.
  • Teatown Lake Reservation is an amazingly peaceful, tranquil place to reconnect with nature all year long. The Hidden Valley trail is always a favorite, moving through a wide variety of terrain, with some optional slightly off trail bouldering for the adventurous. During the winter, go for a walk on the lake (but check that the ice is ready for it first). The nature center is great as well, housing some local animals both indoors and out, and providing information about the history of the area. This place would rate more than 6 stars if I could.
  • Hey guys Ryan Mansell here and today I'm going to be reviewing Teatown Lake Reservation. Let me start off by saying I'm a nature enthusiast so this place is right up my ally. Last summer I went here with my Latina friend, her co worker and one of my children that I nanny. Let me just tell you, we had a blast! Be sure to stop into the building and see the animules.
