Better later than never right?

Join us for a nice fall hike and Foliage Peep just as the leaves begin to change color.

The Plan: We ride the Metro-North Hudson line up to the Dobbs Ferry Station then join the Old Croton Aquaduct trail for a 2.6 mile hike. We’ll hike up to Irvington where we’ll picnic at the park or by the water, commune and chillax for a bit before boarding the train close by to head back to the concrete jungle. This is a Family friendly event so bring the kids if they can walk 2.6 miles 🙂

The train ride up the Hudson river is beautifully scenic and picturesque. You can begin to see the fall colors on the ride up. 

And this flat hike is perfect for those hoping to get a good mix of natural views and New York history. It follows the route of the Old Croton Aqueduct, completed in 1842 to provide water to New York City. The hike will take you past some of the crumbling, scenic & historic parts of the old aqueduct system.
