Easy walk, unfortunately park Pitch Pines devastated by bark beetles. North side of Veterans Highway offers nicer trails including a section of Greenbelt that is nicely laid out up to Lakeland County Park. Lots of ticks in warmer weather, treated clothing and gaiters recommended.

Nice lake in tarrytown to chill out in.

Nice easy loop around a lake but not really strenuous at all. Nice place to walk the dogs or go for a jog. To get your heart pumping try some of the other trails at Rockefeller.

this trail is like walking on a 15 foot wide lawn. the dog and I covered over 5 miles. no inclines. trail conditions are ice, snow and mud with some dry areas. very peaceful walk. nice little rest area with a bench where someone had a little fire going. enjoyed the walk and got to see a piece of history. nice day, good exercise!

Plenty of hiking trails, maintained well. Wear boots you aren’t afraid of getting muddy or wet. Some trails can be very muddy after rain or snow melting.

Nice place to visit. Lots of trails, reportedly a lot of wildlife (the group I went with was likely too large and loud and scared them off). Trails are wide, appear to be pretty well marked (from parking lot to Bunce's Bridge). Despite recent rains, trails were pretty good. Pretty flat, so good for beginners. Will go back in other seasons and with fewer people. Shared with equestrians.

this trail is a breeze to walk. according to my GPS, we covered 5.2 Mi today. if it were summer time it would be like walking on a 10 to 15 foot wide lawn. spotted a nice little rest spot where someone had a little fire going. very peaceful setting. didn't notice any inclines and it seemed to go on in either direction. nice beautiful day to take a walk with the dog and see a piece of history.

This trail is a joke not well marked

nice easy walk but check your dog for ticks asap. just got home and pulled 4 ticks off if it. not fun..

As others have stated, getting to the trail was poorly marked and hard to find. No signs for trail starts anywhere from parking lots. However, once you find the trail it’s very well marked. Rock scrambles are difficult for dogs but do-able. Only a few steep parts and they’re on the rock scrambles. The views from Sunset Rock are absolutely beautiful.

Great hike! Well marked trails... good hills but not to hilly

Great trail! Some nice hills, very pretty. Took under 2 hours to do the 5 miles. I went when there was some snow on the ground, which was very icy underneath on most of the trail, maybe from the xc skis? So just be careful or bring your microspikes!

This was so much fun to do with our family! I gave it only 3 stars for two reasons. One, it was almost a half hour before we could find the actual trail. We parked near the local tubing drop off/pick up site is and then there are many campsites and what look like hangout spots. There is a small gravel road back to more parking, which leads to some camping spots and then the trail back. Look for that dirt/gravel road back to find the trail. Secondly, the trail in was gross. Trash everywhere, piles of old dog bags near picnic tables, clearly not maintained. It was also clear it was a party spot, which I am always nervous to bring children to. Once at the slide it was awesome. We had hours of fun, spots were like mini pools where the kids could play and swim, just a neat spot. People had brought tubes and were sliding down parts of it. I would recommend but just be prepared, wish people would take care of the world a little better.

Nice easy hike that goes to some really nice views

Great hike, easy

Parked on Sweet Hollow Rd . Walked west side first . Rolling hills and main trail easy to follow . Wide enough for a vehicle .
East side has much more elevation still same wide trails . There are some off shoot trails that fine to hike are not really well marked . Overall a nice walk .

Flat easy scenic walk

Had fun with the family!!

Great place to go! Great view from the lodge. Trails for everyone. Hikers, mountain bikers, and they even have trails for horse back riding. You can down load the map right from there site, and there different loops with different distances for all skill levels.

Nice section of the canal, for misc activities

Could be good.

Just finding the starting point was a pain. Waze and google maps took me to the wrong part of the park. Had to use AllTrails to find where to go. Once we finally found the parking lot (near big dog park, not the little one) I couldn't find starting point of the trail. No noticeable signs. Had to ask around. Then the trails are all over the place so we too some wrong turns and did circles. Had to use AllTrails map to stay on track.

Seems like if you know where to go and if the trails are clear it's good. Otherwise I'd recommend finding a different trail. Wasted a lot of time figuring out where to go.

Rooty ,muddy lots of thorns. The trails are all broken up in different sections and should not take more than 45 minutes to run the whole thing. Some of the trails are across the street on Hylan Blvd. and Luten Ave. Be very watchful of cars they will not slow down at all.

Nice trail, good hike.

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

The paved trail is great for riding bikes with kids are going for a nice run. Walking down to the water is fun too. Like that you can stay on pavement or go off road if you want.

TIP: follow the speed limit when driving there. The cops on the way can give tickets for 5 over.

Skied this yesterday. Mostly flat, though there are a few gentle hills. Amazing views.

Relaxing hike.trails were clearly marked. saw a few birds, unfortunately the pond was still frozen so that limited the amount of ducks to see. definitely will go back .

I only visited once. We came here as we so often go to Avalon which is closer and we’re looking for a change. We went when there was a lot of snow on the ground and people were cross country skiing and this park seems better for that then hiking. My kids and I did the red trail to yellow trail around the lake. The views of the lake were pretty especially in the snow. The bridges and little streams up by the hatchery were also neat. The trail itself was a little bland no elevation changes.

This was a great quick trail with some surprises. Do yourself a favor and do NOT stick to the paved path. Slightly off to the right of the western boundary of the park you’ll find Crum Creek, which has some fantastic ruins of a stone dam, and some stone arches of a old stone bridge. My kids and I walked along the creek instead of the parallel path up top for a much more adventurous and scenic day. :)

Well marked, saw plenty of white tail deer. Will definitely go again.
