Co będziecie robić

Love hiking? Love history? Love haunted tales? My guided, 4-5 mile hike (*length of hike can be easily adjusted based on group) through scenic Rockefeller Park along the majestic Hudson River is the perfect combination! Depending on the season, we may pass farm animals connected with a nearby 5 star, farm-to-table restaurant, experience color bursts of fall foliage, or see a spectacular peony garden gifted to the preserve by the Japanese after 9/11. Along the way I will regale you with stories involving the history of the area, which includes espionage during the Revolutionary War, the story behind the Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and you will see the famous Sleepy Hollow Cemetery where Washington Irving is among many famous people interred there, and area hauntings. We will stop to rest as needed and picnic (weather permitting) overlooking the Hudson River midway through. We will get to know one another and I look forward to hearing about where everyone is from!

The hike begins and ends at the entrance to the park, but guests may join me afterward at one of the oldest bars in Westchester, dating back to Prohibition. This former speakeasy is steps away from the Pleasantville Metro North train station and guests will be entertained with its rich history. A fine way to end our adventure!

Gdzie będziecie

Rockefeller Park, located just 40 miles north of New York City, covers thousands of sweeping acres along the Hudson River, within which are historical sites. The views are breathtaking every season of the year, but spring, summer, and fall are my favorites. There are dozens of trails and an experienced guide is very helpful in making the most of your experience. It took me many years to hike all the trails and find the treasures of each.

We had a lovely walk at this beautiful location. Miriam was knowledgable about the trail system and took us on a great 5 mile loop with a nice lunch. She provided snippets of interesting history of the area.

Miriam was a good tour guide. She gave informative stories about the area as well as guided the hike well. It was a nice leisure picturesque 5 mile walk thru the woods with some hills.

Beautiful hike revealing areas I had not stumbled upon even after being in the area for many years. Great tales of local history woven in seamlessly with the hike, and entertaining ghost stories as well. Highly recommended for all ages.

Miriam is really nice and friendly. She is very knowledgeable about the area we were hiking through, and had endless stories and tales to share with us during the hike. We stopped for lunch at a beautiful view of the Hudson river. Her schedule is flexible, and we actually requested a different time and day than she had listed, and she was able to accommodate us. Lunch was good, but unfortunately she wasn't able to take us out for the drink due to her schedule.

Miriam was an excellent host! Although I have been a life-long resident of Westchester County, I had no idea that Rockefeller Preserve was so steeped in history. As we hiked through the scenic trails, the well-informed host regaled us with tales of war, peace, intrigue, as well as historical and literary figures. Miriam's pleasant demeanor really brought our group together, and I very much enjoyed picnicking atop an expansive view, getting to know some new people, and then sharing drinks afterwards with everyone at Foley's--a place I am familiar with, but had no idea was once a speakeasy! I will definitely be booking this experience again with friends, especially as the seasons change. Thank you for a great day Miriam!

A great way to spend a day in Rockefeller State Preserve. Miriam has taken the time to learn the ins and outs of all the trails and can tailor the hike experience to your skill level. Her history of the park and the Rockefeller family were the perfect addition to the picnic lunch she packed for us. And don’t miss the trip to Foley’s at the end for more history and fun with new friends.
