While Sleepy Hollow is well known for its headless horseman, there are quite a few lesser-known legends that take place on this land. The names of some of our most iconic locations such as Spook Rock, Ravens Rock, Witch’s Spring come from stories that have been told by locals dating back hundreds of years. Join Rockefeller State Park Preserve for a 2-mile twilight hike to visit some of these locations and hear their stories.

The hike will begin at 25 Sleepy Hollow Road, Sleepy Hollow, NY 10591. Do NOT go to the main park entrance.
