Rockefeller Preserve Moderate

  • Jan 26, 2014 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join us for a moderate pace over rolling hills at this beautiful working farm....about 5 miles, 2-3 hours.

Bring a snack and hot toddy/chocolate plus 2 liters of water.

Meetup at the Bathrooms in the main parking lot on Rt. 117E between Routes 9 and 9A near Pleasantville and Sleepy Hollow, N.Y.

We will head 1.5 miles past the visitor's center around Swan Lake and off preserve property to Stone Barns at a moderate pace.  We will return to parking area and those who are too chilly can early out.    I plan to finish up with a 2 mile brisk pace on 13 Bridges Loop.

Required Waterproof hiking boots with good treads!!! Optional micro spikes and trekking poles.

Parking: $6 per car weekends;  Free off season weekdays

    Can I bring my dog? He is a great hiker and loves snow.

    You can park free on Old Sleepy hollow Rd and walk up to the main parking lot in 5 minutes to meet the group. However, with the snow crowding the sidewalks make sure your tires are off the road.

    You're probably all aware of it, but just in case someone isn't.... THE GOOGLE MAP LINK IS WAY OFF. Par for the course with Google. Rockefeller is West of the map location - on Rt 117 between 9A and Broadway ( Rt 9). Use 125 Phelps Way, Pleasantville, 10570. Turn on Tower Hill Rd of Rt 117. Tower Hill exists only on the East side of Rt 117.

    Nice hills. Used to do training runs there. Fine with just chugging along now.

    1) I believe weekends after 8:30am still incur some type of parking fee at the main lot.
    2) Possible photo ops at farm (pigs, sheep, geese, chickens)...depending on route taken.
