Sunset Hike (good intro to nite hiking) - OCA to Western slope of Rockefeller Pk

Great for those that have never hiked in the dark before - wide paths/carriage trails, much easier footing and terrain than my other sunset hikes.

Ted's phone number:[masked]

Beginner/Intermediate (relatively flat terrain on carriage paths/brisk pace).  We will start out hiking on the OCA (Old Croton Aquaduct) and eventually enter Rockefeller Park. We will then walk on carraige trails to an elevated field where we will chill out to watch the sunset. We will then hike back to the OCA and return to our cars. We will discuss if some of us want to go out for a bite to eat at the nearby Bridgeview.


We will come out at dusk to dark - Bring headlamps or flashlights

Terrain - Mostly flat, small hills to view spot.

Distance - about 4 1/2  miles

Pace - Brisk in/up, slower at dusk/dark on way out

Time - about 1 1/2 to 2 hours


Directions: Take I-287 (Cross Westchester Expwy ) to Exit 1 (Rt. 119). At Exit turn right (Rt. 119 West) and follow to end (Rt. 9).Turn right on Rt. 9 (heading North); proceed approx. 1½ miles, the high school is on your right. Turn right onto the High school driveway, bear left and follow to the top of the hill and make your first left into the back parking lot. From the North: Take Saw Mill to Pleasantville exit, go left onto 117 and follow to route 9 South.  Enter village and you will see High School on left. Turn left onto the High school driveway, bear left and follow to the top of the hill and make your first left into the back parking lot.

    Had a situation and forgot to bring my map of trails(I had not done this route before.). Thought I would have to depend on my memory. Fortunately Dean took Dave out for a walk and he led us through it. Thanks Dave. The group was excellent and as always it's good to get out there. It was a nice change of venue.

    Great weather for the walk partly cloudy makes for good sunsets and a long dusk, 47 degrees. After today, weather not so nice for awhile.
