Unlike the Park’s usual night walks, this walk will be limited to 15 individuals so that you can really get a feel for the nuances of the nocturnal forest. Great horned owl activity can be expected. Coyotes and foxes may begin rearing their young around this time, resulting in increased vocalization. You may also be able to hear wood frogs, which begin mating around this time.
Please bring a headlamp or flashlight with a red light setting. Make sure that you dress warmly. The walk will begin and end in the Visitor’s Center courtyard and will last 1-2 hours, depending on weather conditions. No pets please.
IMPORTANT: Hike leaves promptly at scheduled time. This is a night hike, after the park has officially closed. Latecomers will not be allowed to join after the group has departed.
In case of bad weather, the hike will be canceled; you will be notified via email at least 2 hours in advance.
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!
