This was the Weekend for bike riding, but the dog wasn't in the mood for riding in his bike,so we abandoned the bikes and hit the road for the hour drive to this Reservation that is a vast property(many mile). There is an entry fee,but lots of parking. We immediately hit the walking trails. Well this was better for the dog as he was thrilled to walk the long tails along the stream that runs for about 3.5 miles. along the way we ran into a movie company starting a film about the leather-man(legend has it that he wanders the park. Navy the dog got us all the attention we needed with crew so we were able to see them transform the actor to a cave man it was cool and his makeup took for every but was great in the end. Ok back to the trails. They are rough and rocky but clear enough to travel and the stream made the greatest sounds ever and was clear and cool. Dogs are to be leashed at all times but everyone seem to relaxed this on the trails. Well that is until another dog is spotted,and then its back to the leash for all safety purpose. You can camp here overnight but that was out the question with me and Navy the dog(too many wild animals). As with most walking trips have your water bottle with you,don't drink from the stream nor let your dog drink from it. For beginner trail walkers, this is a great one for the whole family. We ended the day with a late lunch picnic near the stream, as there is many, picnic sites and lots of tables and pits for grilling. But no place to put your trash afterward, so bring your own trash bags. It's a lovely and peaceful place and a great place to connect with nature. Don't tell anyone but afterward we took a drive by Martha Steward compound in katonah, before heading back to the city. Hope the dog will be up for the bike ride this weekend as you burn more calories riding a bike than walking.
