Steph C. on Saxon Woods Park Trail
Beautiful this time of year -- the leaves are starting to change. Peaceful and terrific place to bring my pup for his first nature hike. Flat terrain for easy walking. Nice wide trail for bigger groups if needed. Great for children and dogs.
It was a good hike to do with a group of friends that wanted a short hike and escape the hustle and bustle of the City. We caught the metro north up from Manhattan and short uber ride later we started the hike. Not strenuous and was quite enjoyable!
The park provides a pleasant stroll through the woods. Nothing particularly notable, but there are some interesting boulders and we saw several black squirrels. It's a little close to some major roads so we were able to hear the traffic for most of the walk.
I really enjoyed this hike. It was fairly easy and paths were pretty clear though as someone else mentioned it could have been marked a little better. The whole loop was closer to three miles and it certainly felt like we got a little bit of a work out in. Fun hike, would do it again. Also parking is free which is great.
It was not a moderate trail, this trail is hard and for the casual hiker is a dangerous trail where no children or pets should be allowed. That being said, it is a fun, challenging trail where you need concentration and stamina. Can't wait to do it again!
