Rockland Lake State Park's lake is located on a ridge of Hook Mountain above the west bank of the Hudson River. The park offers a huge 24,140 square foot swimming pool with diving boards--the pool is more than 10,000 square feet larger than an Olympic size pool! A kiddie pool is also available for young children. The park also offers picnic tables; grills, a car top boat launch dock, boat and bicycle rentals, hiking trails with breath-taking views of the Hudson Valley, six tennis courts and the Rockland Lake State Park golf courses, featuring two 18 hole golf courses. Anglers can fish Rockland Lake for bass, perch and norlunge. Walkers, joggers, roller bladders, and bicyclists can enjoy the 3.2 mile non-motorized use paved trail around the lake.

Beautiful, scenic route. Great for walking, running, biking, and a perfect loop with many access points along the way. Only downfall is don't try this path on the weekends. It is a very popular place, with many outdoor parties happening, and children and toys can make obstacles you have to be careful of. Weeknights only.
