History of Rockwood Hall
September 9 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join Rockwood docent, David Teich, on an adventure into the past as we explore the remains of Rockwood Hall and its rich history dating back to prehistoric times.
Former estate of William A. Rockefeller Jr., this site boasts scenic views overlooking the Hudson, lush forests, and remnants of 19th century luxuries. Leashed dogs are welcome.
Please bring water to drink and wear comfortable closed-toed shoes; the hike is about 2 miles roundtrip. Long pants tucked into your socks are recommended to prevent exposure to ticks and poison ivy.
This hike is at Rockwood Hall, DO NOT go to the main entrance. The parking lot is on Kendal Way off route 117, just after the intersection of Phelps and Regeneron. If the lot is full, you may park in the Phelps garage (free).
Gather at the kiosk at the top of the hill across the street from the parking lot.
In the event of rain, the hike may be canceled or postponed; you will be notified by 5 pm the day prior.
Max: 40 people.
This hike is part of the Hudson River Valley Ramble, an annual event series that celebrates the history, culture, and natural resources of our area. Participants will receive a giveaway to commemorate the occasion. To learn more about the Ramble, visit their website at: HudsonRiverValleyRamble.com
