Sleepy Hollow Loop Walk

March 27 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free
A view of the Old Croton Aqueduct Pocantico weir.

Free, small group, open-air walk.

Meet at Aqueduct Ventilator #12, on the Aqueduct Trail just steps south of the intersection of Gory Brook Road and Ridge Street in Sleepy Hollow (on-street parking on Gory Brook Road). We will walk north and discuss the Aqueduct and view some of its structures, including a weir, a 90-foot high embankment carrying the Aqueduct over the Pocantico River, the ghostly remnants of an old Keeper’s House, and touch upon Rockefeller history and the monument in nearby Sleepy Hollow Cemetery to those in the NY Guard’s First Provisional Regiment who perished during the 1918 Spanish Influenza pandemic while guarding the Aqueduct during The Great War.

Required for this walk of approximately 5 miles: pre-registration (limited number); masks, and social distancing.

Walk will be rescheduled if weather does not cooperate.

Halloween season brings even more for the whole family—haunted hayrides, blazing pumpkins, costumed 5K run, Halloween parade, and of course, the Headless Horseman!
