The original water supply to New York City is now a walking trail that runs from Croton-on-Hudson in the north to Yonkers in the south. Notably, the trail passes through the Lyndhurst estate in the south end of Tarrytown, and very near Washington Irving’s Sunnyside.
The trail is suitable for jogging, hiking, biking and walking with strollers, although some sections of the trail are rough. The trail can also be muddy after a heavy rain. First time visitors will want to pick up a copy of Friends of the Old Croton Aqueduct trail map and guide for assistance in navigating some of the trail’s detours. In the villages of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow the trail often passes through backyards, offering a unique perspective on life in the two villages.
Bicycle rentals available in Tarrytown through Sleek eBikes.
