This is one of my favorite walks in lower Westchester. Parking is free, there's a nature center with bathrooms. This place is perfect for all ages. There are several trails to choose from and I usually see some type of wildlife.

Getting away from the City for a pleasant weekend in early Autumn, Teatown is an hour north of Manhattan and affords a peaceful and leisurely respite surrounded by trees and nature. Walking trails on hand.

We're spending the week finding little hikes to go on in our area and this is the first one. We absolutely loved our mile and a half walk around the lake and we can't wait to go back. Also enjoyed the nature center.

Great place for a walk or longer hike Favorite is the Hidden Valley Trail. Many diverse sections that will make your walk entertaining. Beware of some steep elevation changes Plenty of parking and not particularly crowded, this is definitely a local go to place

Pretty park with many hiking trails, easy to difficult. Great for dog walking around the lake. You can bring a picnic, tables are available. Small museum and nature displays.

I am not sure. Like Morrigan7 I have never seen anyone biking either. Best to call the Center,
