“A Working Farm and Horse Trails”

Located in Sleepy Hollow this former Rockefeller Estate features horse trails, which are nice and flat and excellent for a winter walk. There is also a working farm that supplies livestock and vegetables for the Blue Hill restaurant which are located on the premises. There is also a shop and a grain café to purchase items grown and baked on the premises.

Comfortable boots a must.  Rain cancels. Bring lunch and water.

Sunday, December 15th  |  Anthony’s Nose

“Panoramic Views of the Hudson River”

The hike begins off of Mountain Pass Road in Garrison. The trail ascends up the cliffs overlooking the Hudson River. Eventually, you reach the breathtaking views of the Hudson River from the summit.

The Mountain was named Anthony’s Nose because of the peculiar shape of the river in that area. Because of this shape, hikers can see fantastic views north and south on the river. Across from the mountain is Iona Island, which is a bird sanctuary. It is very common to see Bald Eagles, Turkey Vultures and other birds of prey gently riding the breeze overhead.

I have personally seen ticks on the Nose, so please wear proper clothing and bring repellant. A small air mattress may be a welcome item as well.

Comfortable boots a must.  Rain cancels. Bring lunch and water.

Here are some GUIDELINES FOR PARENTS to read if you are thinking of bringing your child on one of our hikes:
1. We enjoy having children on hikes but they must stay close to you throughout the entire hike.  You — not the Hike Leader — are responsible for them.
2. You have to determine by reading the full hike description and/or calling the Hike Leader a few days before the hike if your child has both the interest and the stamina to keep up with the group and to complete the hike.
3. Children need to be wearing hiking boots or sturdy sneakers.
4. Bring extra food, water and your child’s favorite snacks for “motivation.”
5. Not required, but a good idea is to have them carry a small backpack with a few items for a sense of responsibility and to feel part of the group.
6. No electronic devices of any kind on hikes!  (Adult cellphones on “vibrate” but use not encouraged except in emergencies.)
