Take a walk in Fall

Fall is my favorite season, love the crisp air, cool days and warm sun. One of my favorite activities is to hike the trails of Westchester during the fall.

The Old Croton Aqueduct Trail over by the Sleepy Hollow High School offers a nice level path through the woods where we can see the leaves changing color, hear the birds sing, fight a zombie, maybe see a deer.

Comfortable shoes or hiking boots is recommended and a bottle of water.

95 Bedford Road is the house near the school's parking lot at an entrance to the OCA.

If your GPS is having trouble, please let me know

    This was a great idea Jaymes. Let's do another one real soon. Besides, the conversation was good, as was the apples!

    • Chris

      Jaymes you should so make this a recurring event during fall leaf season!

      September 20, 2013

    • Seamas

      I intend to, its just figuring out a schedule that works

  • John S.

    I'm in!

    • Chris

      yay! by the way i always wanted to go to a mass at that church because i heard my friend from when I worked in the jail, Fr. Paul, sometimes says Mass there and I liked him a lot

      September 20, 2013

  • John S.

    I would love to do this, if everyone attending wouldn't mind the time being moved to 12:30 (I cantor the 11 AM mass at Church of the Magdalene right up the block from here and live 5 minutes walk from SHHS). Is that a possibility?

    September 19, 2013

    • Ali

      Sleeping in a bit? Sure. I think I can handle that.

    how far will we be from the Sleepy Hollow school track (they have port o potties)? I like to plan ahead.......
    BTW, I think the lake trail in teatown would probably be a beautiful place to walk in the fall.

    1 · September 19, 2013

    • Chris

      i've walked the track before and they have them, fyi. I just didn't know how far it was from the old croton trail, which I've never been on. either way i'm coming.

      September 19, 2013

    • Chris

      btw, jaymes, you should look for this book "walkable westchester" which my now be out of print. I agree, fall is the best season

      September 19, 2013

  • Ali

    Maybe the leaves will have started changing by then!!! Whee!

    Leaves confuse zombies.
