Join Rockefeller State Park Preserve historian Mike Miernik for a six-mile hike to Pocantico Lake and back. Learn about Pocantico Lake and how it influences the amount of water in the Pocantico River and Swan Lake areas of the Preserve.
The hike will take three to four hours, depending on conditions. You will move at a brisk and steady pace, so dress in layers to avoid overheating and make sure to bring water. Leashed dogs are welcome. Meet at the Visitor Center courtyard.
There's something for everyone in the real Sleepy Hollow—farmers markets, live music, street fairs, historic homes, hiking trails, kayaking and boating on the Hudson River. Halloween season brings even more for the whole family—haunted hayrides, blazing pumpkins, costumed 5K run, Halloween parade, and of course, the Headless Horseman!
