Beautiful trails and not heavily trafficked. Some trails aren’t marked very well but easy enough to find your own way around.

Beautiful walk. Very little incline. It’s very adjustable to the amount of miles you’d like to walk.

Love this area - well marked series of interconnected trails weaving through the woods and over rocks and streams. Hiked the long loop around on the red tail then took the blue trail at the end before returning to parking area. Nothing overly challenging but a lot of nice ups and downs to get the blood pumping. Everyone I passed had dogs, none of them leashed. In parts you can see homes and some faint road noise but overall a really great little hike. I'll be back!

Lots and lots of (cute) dogs !!!

A nice easy hike suitable for most ages and those with dogs. Really pretty ground cover and lots of space in the woods for long sight lines. Probably a wonderful post-Thanksgiving walk!

I was a great hike. It's interesting how there are visible residential houses that can be seen through the brush of the trees. There were small and nice streams to cross and the terrain is nice. It wasn't difficult to get through. I'll definitely go back to this trail.

Fun place to go for an easy hike

Took the white trail from Dogwood trailhead, a nice & easy 1.3 mile loop with some hills & some stream crossings.
Saw few other people, my dog had a blast. I'd do it again when in the area, but I really like to have some views or water features or a peak or something.
Otherwise a very pleasant, mostly well marked trail. Can be difficult to find your way out!

Beautiful forest with mature blooming tulip trees in late spring and stunning fall foliage. Great for a daily routine with dogs- a moderate workout with running water for taking a break. Nice to get off trail if possible.

Nice trail. Relatively well marked. Not very scenic however. Pretty brooks, a good variety of trees. Typical westchester fauna - chipmunks, etc. A good amount of hiking up and down, some parts might be slippery after rain. The entire park is unfortunately close to the highways, so you can hear the sounds of cars, trucks, construction from many places in the park. On the other hand the good part is most of the park has good cell phone reception. Suggest you take a map with you (you can snap a picture of it with your phone at the entrance). Seems to be popular with dogs and people who walk them. Unfortunately some people ignore the dogs on a leash only signs.

This is a typical Westchester hike. No views, lots of small changes in elevation, stone walls, open understory. Blazes are in pretty bad shape but you can't really get lost. If you want to get out for an hour or so with your dog, this place is perfect. The entrance on Hardscrabble road was, at least for me, impossible to find. I think it is mailbox number 300. You park right off the driveway and walk almost to someone's house. This is a slightly above average hike, due to the many stream crossings, which is nice.

Great hike with moderate up and down hill slopes. Spots with running water great for dogs to get a drink. Power lines are an unfortunate feature but you can hardly notice them in many sections due to all the natural beauty.
