Great place for a family hike with small children. Not difficult at all. Quarry was very nice. Will try again in fall when leaves are turning.

Great walk with my sons - got a little turned around on the purple trail but the quarry was really cool - will definitely be back!

Nice park with a nice hike, on the easy side but still a really nice day out. Especially with a beginner hiker.

I had a great experience. Very peaceful and easy trails. I wandered off onto the unbeaten path a little bit, but it was easy to navigate around. I only saw about 4 people the entire time and was there for about 45 min to an hour so it was very quiet. The quarries were really fun for rock climbing. Definitely recommend going here.

The time when I went the water was marshy. However the visit to quarry was a good place to hike.

When looking for something close by to go to after work this seemed like a good choice. Maybe since it was a weekday we were the only ones there but we parked and walked right onto the trail. The trails were well marked on the front end most likely due to more foot traffic, and a little bit more covered up on the back loop, but regardless it is pretty straight forward and well marked. The quarry is very cool and fun if you are into a rock scrambling experience. The lake itself it a bit blocked by trees but you can take trails right along side it. Just a word to the wise, bring bug spray as the mud and low waters are swarming with mosquitoes. Overall I was very impressed and it is a beautiful preserve. Just be careful where you step because it seems like a hangout spot and broken beer bottles and glass shards are littered throughout especially in the quarry.

Many trails to explore. Hike up to the quarry for some fun scrambles and great views.

Great Trail. Kind of easy but very accessible.

A small convenient park for those living in Westchester, NY. Easy trails circumnavigate the lake which is more of a wetland. If you explore off the main trails, secondary trails will lead you to an old rock quarry where stone was collected in the early 20th century for the Kensico dam. The quarry is fun for climbing rocks and viewing graffiti of hooligans long gone. The biggest disappointment about Cranberry Lake is no dogs allowed.
