Rockefeller State Park Preserve
1 mile east of Route 9, Sleepy Hollow, NY 10591 and approximately 30 miles from the hustle and bustle of New York City. This park is comprised of over 1,000 acres donated by the Rockefeller family.It has many trails on its roaming acres of land. There are rivers, forests, meadows.
Seasonal activities include hiking, recreational running, bird watching, fishing (New York state fishing license and Rockefeller Park permit required), picnicking, horseback riding, carriage driving, photography, painting, geocaching (park permit required). In winter, there are sledding hills, snowshoe trails, and cross-country skiing. Household pets are allowed on leash.
There’s a $6 parking fee for car parking in the lot at the main entrance. The most notable feature of the Preserve is the system of carriage roads built by John D. Rockefeller Jr. Designed to complement the landscape, the carriage roads, many of which are accessible, allow visitors to experience and enjoy the natural wonders of the area. These scenic paths wind through wetlands, woodlands, meadows, and fields and past streams, rivers, and lakes while traversing wood and stone bridges
