Nice walk. You can walk the ridge from Rt 45 to 33. Cross 33 and walk down into the park.Not much more to be said. It has been closed since Hurricane Sandy.

We followed a winding uphil road to the parking lot. High Tor is a small park without walking trails. There is not much more than parking lot and a swimming pool.
