I have not been to Devils Den in a number of years so let's test my memory and my ability to read a trail map.
Depending on what we do, I'd rate this a slight notch above Rockefeller and Ward Pound Ridge. I say slight notch as I'd like to work in some of the outer sections of the park.
A few general items
1) Pets are not allowed on this hike
2) Parking is limited which is why the RSVP number is 20. I can extend that number if you are part of a carpool. I can do a carpool from either the Kisco area or the Park n Ride in Katonah.
3) Please be firm in a Yes RSVP since parking is limited.

Directions to The Den From the Merritt Parkway, take
Exit 42 and travel north on Route 57 for 3.8 miles to
the blinking light. Continue straight on Route 53 to the next
traffic light, turn left on Godfrey Road West. Continue
for 1/2 mile, then turn right on Pent Road, which ends at the
preserve’s main parking area.

The Meetu map is correct is you want to be old school or GPS less like me
Timeline - I'd say whatever we can do within 5 hours
$1.00 fee for this event - open to post hike dining if there is interest.
