Teatown Lake Reservation's mission is to inspire our community to lifelong environmental stewardship. We realize our mission through environmental education, stewardship of Teatown's preserve, and regional conservation of the Hudson Hills and Highlands. At the center of all our endeavors is teamwork and partnership, because nature conservation and environmental health are possible only when people and their communities work together for the common good. The Teatown team is made of our members, donors, volunteers, board, staff and program participants. Our successes are only possible because of their hard work and dedication to our mission. In addition, we seek collaborations with other organizations and businesses who share our vision.

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.

Great place for hiking trails that aren't too long. The gem is wildflower island, but you need to be at least 16 years of age, and must make a reservation.
