Great trail, and nice lake views!

Great hike, easy

This is a flat dirt path, why is it rated moderate, it's so easy!?

Loved this trail! Perfect for beginners and it’s nice and quiet.

Not a great trail, there are houses and roads right next to it. It's pretty flat and wide, and it's more of a walk than a hike. There's a train station at one end, in Sleepy Hollow, and parking at the other end.

This trail is quite easy. It's def a good trail to do if you haven't already. This is def a walk in the park. It also has a FREE bird and reptile zoo.

Hiked the blue Lake Trail, including yellow-green loop on the east side of the Lake: Enjoyed the extra loop: loose forest and open meadow with flowers when the trail looped back along the power lines.
Trails are well marked, easy hiking, moderate traffic.

It's nice that it's within another bigger trail for an option or more challenging hike. The Tea Town lake is descent in size and the view is enjoyable after a long hike with our dogs. Just keep in mind that there's no phone service and bring a bug spray with you.

Nice easy trails and very well marked. Nice views of the lakes. Went down to the waterfall but not enough rain this year so it was jus a trickle. Good for families.

OCA actually is well beyond croton-on-Hudson . It is a linear state park 20+ miles that runs south(Bronx border) to north (Putnam border) in westchester . Very diverse - woods, backyards of modest homes and cutting through huge estates (eg Lyndhurst). Some of OCA winds through village streets. It's signature are the column vents that pop up every mile or so to allow flow of water from Catskills (?) to NYC many years ago. Great views of Hudson.

The aquaduct is great and a sight to enjoy. I have lived in NY for so many years and didn't realize such a beautiful place is so near by. It is very calming to watch the aquaduct. Hiking / trekking is quite easy and simple. A nice, quick get-away place.

Trails around the lake are great. Easy walking, nice scenery, areas for rest and picnics. Parking lots offer convenience right near the trail openings. The hike was an overall great experience for the first hour.... then it wasn't. Some might say this trail took a turn for the worse. Be warned: the Briarcliff/Peekskill trail is not part of the Reservation hike. We followed that trail from the Waterfall, and 3 hours later found ourselves in the midst of an active hunting trail. We walked into piles of deer remnants, a dog kennel featuring nonstop barking, and a trail that went 5 feet from people's homes. We then discovered, much to our surprise, that the trail does not loop, but rather continues downstate. Once we hit Route 9, we turned around on the trail and walked for 3 miles on neighborhood roads, in the dark, to our vehicle. In trying to leisurely walk 2 miles, we actually did 10 miles through the woods and the dark. Though definitely a product of our own stupidity, I would take caution when choosing your trail.

Hilly trail with some moderately steep inclines. Beautiful trail though. Narrow in spots. Perfect for a good short out and back 3 mile workout

Teatown lake trail system is a nice area with lots of trails, they range from easy to moderate. We hikes the blue trail around the lake as we had two kids with us. It was a nice easy hike with lots of interesting things for the kids to see.
I would recommend this for families with children.

Though it's well maintained and has some interesting sightseeing, it cuts right through people's backyard and gives zero sense of solitude.

I started the trail in Tarrytown. It stunk at first because you're cutting through streets and backyard. Once you're in Sleepy Hallow you'll go to a beautiful part of the trail. You'll be along highways for a bit until you hit Ossining and from there's its quiet and peaceful. Just you and the birds!

Pleasant trail for stretching the legs out after a long winter - wide, well-maintained, and not too much up & down for out-of-practice legs to deal with. The trail is accessible from mass transit (I took the Hudson Line to Ossining and followed the trail from there to Tarrytown, about a third of the overall length of the trail. The downside is that the trail spends a lot of time just behind back yards, and is never very far from the road - or out of earshot of cars.

The reservoir was nice but crowded. The p-k trail which is the longest trail at 6 miles passes through DEP land and no dogs are allowed. It was a big disappointment since this app said this was dog friendly.
