Needs a location


Let's hike in Rockefeller Preserve every Sunday, starting at 8 am. We start at the Old Sleepy Hollow Road location (see directions below and picture above). This is for exercise. Bring plenty of water and dress in layers and you might want to consider bug spray (in the Spring, Summer & Fall). The trails are wide, have cinder gravel and there are hills. The walk is 4-6 miles at a 3 mile/hour pace.

Brian will be leading this hike for the foreseeable future as I have knee problems. Please email him your cell so he can keep in contact ([masked]). We leave at 8:05 am, please be prompt or text Brian so he is aware if you are running late, please don't be more than 10 minutes late.

For the foreseeable future, hikes will originate from the Rockefeller park entrance on Old Sleepy Hollow Road. Free parking is available along either side of Old Sleepy Hollow Road. For those who want to park in the main lot ($6), you can walk down Old Sleepy Hollow Road Trail ("SH" on the park map), just outside the main parking lot and meet us at the start point. Leave yourself 15 minutes for that walk.
