- Saxon Woods Park - 5 milesSaxon Woods Park, White Plains, NY
Saxon Woods Park is a 700-acre property in Westchester County offering a variety of recreational facilities. In colonial times, the park area was called Saxton Forest, after William Saxton, who operated a sawmill on the western branch of the Mamaroneck River.
This hike will be 5 miles on a series of regular hiking trails which are slightly hilly and mildly challenging in spots. I recommend one or two hiking poles if needed for balance. Pace will be steady and moderate. Be sure to bring a minimum of one liter of water and lunch. We will stop at the county’s public golf course with outdoor seating and have our lunch. Restrooms are available at lunchtime and at the very beginning of the hike. Joint with Shorewalkers. Those arriving by train will need a short car or taxi shuttle to the trailhead about 15 minutes away.
Where to Meet: Meet at the Mamaroneck, NY train station at 10 AM. Await the train from NYC and assist by shuttling hikers to the hike location about 15 minutes away.
