Rockefeller State Park Preserve charges a parking fee of $6/vehicle that is collected daily between April - October and on weekends and holidays between November - March. This trail combines several well marked paths that lead to the impressive Ravens Rock. Trail begins at the tollhouse booth on Stone Barns Farm. Highlights include beautiful lakes, old growth oaks, wildlife, and rolling meadows. A precaution: Ravens Rock is regarded as the most remote area of the Preserve (a bit "spooky"), hikers should have a companion. Lot parking is free on weekdays, road side also available.

A little boring, but admittedly pleasant. Beautiful, tall trees everywhere. Great for long strolls as there are several interconnecting trails to wander on.

Easily travelled trail-dirt and pebble roads. It’s not climby, but it’s very hilly. Went to Ravens Rock-pretty cool. The rock is descended so you climb fairly large hills to get to the point where you climb down to the rock. Definitely a nice morning. Got there around 7:15 and few peeps walking dogs.

This is definitely more of an easy hike. It’s relatively flat—like a long, leisurely walk. Pretty and green, and very quiet. Scenery remains the same throughout. There are a couple of short uphill stints but you can also just turn around, since it’s not a loop.

Fun, quick walk (45ish each way). Not too strenuous, and not too many people (<10 on a Sunday morning). Can park on the road outside of Blue Hill entrance. Some trees blocking the trails after Hurricane Isaias but you can get around.

Hiking

This was a moderate walk in the woods on a gravel and dirt road. The path is wide (perhaps often used for horses?). Did this hike today with three kids (ages 9, 12, and 15). We took a few wrong turns (watch the GPS carefully!), so it ended up taking about 3.5 hours. The lakes are more like puddles, but it was a great way to spend the morning without driving far.

Fun quick hike! We got down to Raven’s Rock, and tried to hang out at the top, but another group had beat us there. I guess there’s always next time!

Nice, but more of a walk than a hike. Wide, well maintained paths. Markers somewhat confusing at times. The map on this app was a real help.
