Local Lore and Legends

Did you know that the famous horseman ride in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow likely took place here in the Preserve? Actually, there are quite a few lesser-known legends that take place on this land.

The names of some of our most iconic locations (Spook Rock, Ravens Rock, Witch’s Spring) come from stories that have been told by locals dating back hundreds of years.

Join Ranger Su (tonight as “Major Su”) for a 2-mile twilight hike to visit some of these locations and hear their stories.

The hike will begin at 25 Sleepy Hollow Rd, Sleepy Hollow, NY 10591. Do NOT go to the main park entrance. Volunteers will be there to direct you to parking.

Please bring water and wear comfortable closed-toed shoes. Long pants tucked into your socks are recommended to prevent exposure to ticks and poison ivy.

In the event of rain, the hike may be canceled or postponed; you will be notified via email at least 2 hours in advance.

Max: 30 people
