We had a visit to Sleepy Hollow and after a lunch and visits to the spooky sites, we took a bottle of wine and some cheese and bread to the park. It was a beautiful crisp afternoon to enjoy the park.

Hidden gem in Tarrytown
Feb 2020
We've walked in the Rockefeller Park many times but recently discovered the Rockwood Hall portion of the park. It is outstanding. Great views of the Hudson. The trail is in good condition with some ups and downs and open spaces and trees and a stream. I only wish it was longer.

Beautiful hiking

Nicely maintained trails and beautiful views of the Hudson River. Dogs allowed and definitely one of our favorite places to walk.

Miles of easy trails you might not see another person.

This vista overlooking the hudson river connects via the 7 bridges trail and the aquaduct leading to NYC and Ossining.

It is a great place for sleedding and there is lots of parking by the Hospital or by the North Enterance also. Wide open fields, rare trees, lots of stonework are all that is left of the mansion that used to sit here. Excelent place to fly a kite in the back, walk on the loop trail or take the 7 bridges trail up.

Take a kite, sled. There are no facilities here so bring anything you need. Roads are good gravel and drained so you can go if its wet no problem.

Nice hike along the Hudson
Jun 2017 • Couples
Probably this not a destination in itself if you come far away. As an added attraction to a Sleepy Hollow visit, it is perfect, especially if you enjoy a good hike in the Eastern woods and along a major scenic US river. A bonus is the general area itself being loaded with historical significance.

The parking lot for the hike is by Kendal on Hudson a housing development North of Sleepy Hollow and near Phelps Memorial Hospital. You will need to study you G map carefully or ask the locals. By and large it's very accessible by car. Off the parking lot there is a trail head with a map to guide you through the trails of your choice. We chose the 2.1 miles loop leading up to the remnant of William Rockefeller property, then circling through woods and fields then down along the Hudson, enjoying the views along the way. Many benches were available for rest and soaking in the Hudson views from different angles. At times you could be startled by the rumbling of a NY Transit train passing through by the shores of the river, going upstate or returning to the city.

It was an excellent location for a leisurely hike or picnicking, capping a day of sightseeing in and around Sleepy Hollow. Highly recommended!

A Park Off the Beaten Path
Mar 2017 • Solo
This park is where William Rockefeller owned his home and land. You can still see remnants of the structure. The paths take you to scenic views of the Hudson or farther back within the trees. It is a great place to walk, run, picnic, or sled in the winter. You can always find a nice quiet spot if you'd rather be by yourself too!

Breath Taking Hudson River views
Feb 2017 • Family
In beautiful Sleepy Hollow, beucolic trails are accessible year round. Every season offers new visual surprises. If you love a dose of peaceful nature, this will satisfy you. Great for walking, running, or sitting! Some trails have benches to sit and reflect on the beauty.

Excellent park with amazing views
Oct 2016 • Solo
The park was very clean and well taken care of, and the views are incredible. Great place to sit and relax and just stare at the water, or hit a trail and take a little hike. Extremely relaxing and an enjoyable experience.

Incredible views and lovely trails
Dec 2015
The site of the old Rockwood mansion is all that is left of what was a truly great house that should have been preserved. The area is peaceful and walking is a pleasure on long flat paths.
