1. Rockefeller State Park Preserve 

Metro-North stop: Tarrytown 

Trip length: 45 minutes from Grand Central Station on the Hudson Line


2.

Old Croton Aqueduct Trail

Metro-North stop: Philipse Manor (in the town of Sleepy Hollow)

Trip length: 1 hour from Grand Central Station on the Hudson Line

the 7-mile stretch between Sleepy Hollow and Hastings-on-Hudson




It was a summer's retreat for the only three family owners it ever had: William S. Paulding, a military man and politician who was a 

neighbor of Washington Irving, lived here off and on, as did his son as of the 1850. Owing to Lyndhurst's unique design, many snickered at it as “Paulding's Folly.”

Manitoga – The Russel Wright Design Center

Metro-North stop: Garrison

Trip length: 1 hour, 20 minutes from Grand Central Station on the Hudson Line

American product and furniture designer Russel Wright believed that good design lived in creative harmony with nature and the surrounding environment. These principles thrive at Manitoga, his former home, and workspace. Here you can get a firsthand look at the artist’s studio, mid-century modern home, and the 75 acres of woodland gardens that inspired his work. The property’s trails are open to the public for easy solo hiking, or you could join a guided landscape hike to learn about the rich biodiversity in Hudson Valley, NY.


Hudson Highlands State Park Preserve


Metro-North stop: Cold Spring

Trip length: 1 hour, 25 minutes from Grand Central Station on the Hudson Line

On the east side of the Hudson River is the delightful town of Cold Spring. The Metro-North Railroad definitely makes this one of the best day trips from NYC without a car. Cold Spring is the gateway to Hudson Highlands State Park. With 8,000 acres of mostly undeveloped woodland preserve, it’s one of the best hiking and wildlife destinations in the Hudson Valley. There are three trails to put on your radar. For those looking for a less strenuous experience, the Little Stony Point Short Loop is an Easy-rated .09-mile walk through a lovely part of the forest. If you’d like a long trail, the Bull Hill Full Loop is rated Moderate and will take you 5.4 miles past an abandoned rock quarry, early 20th-century farm ruins, a waterfall, and more than one excellent view of the Hudson Valley. Up for a challenge? Consider Breakneck Ridge, an 11.4-mile, Hard-rated hike full of rock scrambles, elevation gains, and stunning scenery. 

A note of caution: this area can get pretty buggy, especially in the spring and fall (we speak from unfortunate experience). Douse yourself in some eco-friendly insect repellent before heading out and keep those ticks away.
