Overview

The Preserve land is comprised of a portion of the Rockefeller family estate in Pocantico Hills given to the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation in 1983. Since the Preserve's inception, additional bequeaths have extended its size to over 1,400 acres. The most notable feature of the Preserve is the system of carriage roads built by John D. Rockefeller Jr. Designed to complement the landscape, the carriage roads, many of which are accessible, allow visitors to experience and enjoy the natural wonders of the area. These scenic paths wind through wetlands, woodlands, meadows, and fields and past streams, rivers, and lakes while traversing wood and stone bridges. Please meet at Preserve Office. Bring 2 quarts of water, lunch and hiking boots. Heavy rain cancels. Please call leader for confirmation.

I am a City girl who learned a long time ago how great it is to go to the country and hike! I am happy to share that feeling of health and happiness with AMC members. I will be leading moderate difficulty hikes of moderate distances-from 4 to 7 miles. Looking forward to meeting you!
