“Changing leaves”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

A great place to go for a great view of NYC. Always a treat to be there. You can picnic or take a walk or have something to eat.

“Nice Bit of Wilderness in the Megapolis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

Great views, quick, fun hikes. It is especially great for the panoramic views of the NYC skyline and for taking in the autumn colors. The only issue is that parking can sometimes be difficult.

“Hiking trails”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

Best hiking trails located in a highly populated area. Just keep a lookout for black bears. Quite a few have been seen up there lately (June).

“Great park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Awesome opportunity for the kids and parents to explore. Great for a walk with the kids. There are lots of people walking their dogs, and clearly an awesome spot for a run.
