Slightly confusing as you get deeper into the trail toward the towers because of the lack of clear markers. Easy hike for beginners, though! Slightly steep on the Jackson Hill to Ledger Trail (orange) and a short loop that brings you back to the white trail. Saw two huge bucks by the water!

Great easy hike with fabulous views

Nice park close to the city

great trail for casual walks with dog

Cold windy and rainy day. Probably not the best day to hike but necessary training. Fast paced hike for my short legs, 26 minutes a mile. Good hike.

Nice hike the only nice view is of the Aqueduct. Trails are easy to follow but you do share some parts of the trail with cyclists. It was a pretty not difficult at all.

Allows to go to Kensico dam, but is almost all along the parkway.

A bit short but family friendly, except for a couple of rocky spots that could prove challenging for the youngest (7-)

Nice local trail tucked away in suburbia! Easy trail, great for a short family hike or a quick trek in the woods when one needs to disappear for an hour. Good for a dog walk too. Just long enough for an afternoon with the kids in between events. We'll go again in the fall!

Easy bike ride; the trail is well maintained and one can stop for great icecream at Trailside Cafe.

Love this app!

Tbh it was not great there were mousquitos and we could bearly see the water beacause of the leaves and trees. And it was also quite short

Enjoyed the trail. Did not enjoy the mosquitoes.

Nothing crazy, just quiet woods.

great downhill ride

Beautiful trail, many nice views. But way to many trail markers. I kept getting lost

Absolutely stunning views from the top and very easy hike. Short and simple. Fab for kids.

This is actually a really easy trail to follow - potentially the blazes were updated since others have done this hike. I recommend getting the map from the car park attendants om your way in. We hiked this with a 2 year old with no problems. The first view is slightly to the left of the base of the last steep climb and the second 'peak' doesn't really have a view but is just past a little but with a fire ring up a short steep path to the right of the first view. Really enjoyed our hike. We were slow due to the aforementioned two year old but in all it was about 2 hours.

Love this route. Great for running because it provides a good challenge

Took the yellow and red loops. Yellow loop had a fair amount of walking up & downhill, but there was a beautiful vista at one point. A little noisy from the road, but got quieter along the path. Saw toads, chipmunks, & birds. Lots of mosquitoes because of sitting water throughout, so definitely bring bug spray & plan to reapply.

Great selection of trails! Make sure and take a map of you're adventurous like me

Great bike trail if you are looking for car free riding. I would recommend biking from North to South, as there is a slight decent this direction. My wife and I biked 34 miles from Tarrytown to Brewster, then took the train back to the city afterwards. The train conditions are amazing, but we were disappointed by the lack of public facilities along the route. There are no water fountains, or public restrooms for the entire length of the trail (including both the North County Trail and Putnam Trail sections). Furthermore, the trail doesn't really go through that many towns, so it's important to bring plenty of water. There are a few gas station stops along the way, so refill you water bottles when you can.

I finally did the trail from Millwood to the end in Brewster. Took me 5 hours. I love this trail. It’s peaceful.

This is the closest to NYC that you will find such technical single-track trails.

Mostly mountain bikers and hikers with an occasional group of kids there to do “who knows what,” but great training for trail running.

All trails are single-track. The Blue trail primarily loops the park and the remaining trails are numbered and somewhat confusing. Not really big enough to get lost, but big enough to get in some good miles with decent elevation gain.

Absolutely stunning and beautiful trail/s. The markings are not the best, but I found that when in doubt, just follow the MTB trail. The trail is labeled as moderate but I noticed from the Westchester MTB site, some parts are advanced. Be careful runners, there were a few large potholes camouflaged on the more technical portions with plush grass. Also, there were parts of the trail that seemed very tough for a runner (you fare better by walking or biking). This caused me to turn back a few times. Finally, like most trails, expect to climb and climb some more. This park felt really safe. I loved this Park and will visit again...and again!

a go-to walk for me. this trail allows add extra loops to make this as long a hike as you'd want
