Ossining & the Aqueduct
We start and end in town — meet in downtown Ossining at the corner of Spring Street and Everett Avenue (you can see an Aqueduct ventilator next to Park Elementary School). But in between expect close Hudson River views from a nature preserve, village tales, and a neat microbrewery… all of it near or on the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail. The taproom is open to us after the walk with indoor and outdoor seating. (Be advised: Ossining is designated a yellow zone as of this writing.).
This outing is for people who walk fairly regularly. If you’ve seen the movie BlackkKlansman, you know this turf! Some hills, 3+ miles, 3 hours. Wear hiking boots and bring water, snacks. Heavy rain/snow cancels. Park free along nearby residential streets. From the Metro-North Hudson Line Ossining Train Station it is a 1-mile, somewhat uphill walk to our meeting place.
Tour leader is Lesley. Please TEXT ONLY to 914-671-7112.
