Located only an hour from New York City this amazingly beautiful park has everything for the family, Forest, Lakes, Wildlife, Hiking, Fishing and pleasant country roads. Not crowded and there is a visitor center that is well worth a stop.

Take the hike to the fire tower. Great views of surrounding area and Greenwood lake. On a real clear day you can see NYC in the distance. Another great hike is around Sterling lake. Enjoy!

About 4 1/2 miles. Entrance near the Visitor's Center pass briefly by a residential section to the West and a Environmental Research Center to the east. The hike was West to East registered having 21 flights on my phone. The blue markers were excellent.

Not on the paths but you can picnic by the visitor's center. They are concerned about bears and are strict about food and carry in and carry out.
