Restoring Old Trails
(and building new ones)
Map of the Park (new trails to come!)
Follow the blazes.
The park already has two terrific bike/walking paths, one on each side of the lakes. But for those who’d like to walk footpaths through the woods, do some early-morning trail running or just get to quieter sections of the park, we’re developing and restoring trails, new and old.
Our mission is to complete these trails, create at least one hiking “loop”, and restore old trails before the trailhead kiosk is built.
We’ve completed the orange-blazed Andre Brook Trail that connects the northern bike path to the Old Croton Aqueduct, starting at the far east end of the bike path.
We’ve blazed the blue trail from the northern bike path down to the lake, across the soccer field and through the woods to where it meets the in-progress yellow trail.
When the yellow trail is finished, it will bring hikers through a meadow, birch woods and open field, a haven for migrating birds.
Finally, the trail from the Pumping Station to Glenville Woods in Greenburgh needs restoring and blazing, something we hope to accomplish in 2017 before the new kiosk is in place.
