Join Rockwood docent David Teich on an adventure into the past as he explores Rockwood Hall and its rich history through stories of the land and the people who called it home.
Former estate of William Rockefeller, this site boasts scenic views overlooking the Hudson, lush forests, and remnants of 19th century luxuries. Leashed dogs are welcome.
Please bring water to drink and wear comfortable closed-toed shoes; the hike is about 2 miles roundtrip.
This hike is at Rockwood Hall, DO NOT go to the main Preserve entrance. The parking lot is on Kendal Way off route 117, just after the intersection of Phelps and Regeneron. If the lot is full, you may park in the Phelps garage (free).
Gather at the kiosk at the top of the hill across the street from the parking lot.
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!
