Van Cortlandt Park Loop

Sunday, May 27, 2018 - 11:00am

Old Croton Aqueduct & Putnam Rail Trails -- Joint Walk with Urban Trail Conference

Meet in either of two locations at 11 am: 

  • Take the local No. 1, IRT, to the last stop in the Bronx, 242nd St. and meet downstairs on the park side of Broadway
  • OR
  • meet at the first parking lot (free) of the Van Cortlandt Park (VCP) golf course.

Easy walk, 5.5 miles, can be muddy: we will walk up the Putnam Rail Trail (past the historic 1748 Van Cortlandt House) to the Yonkers border and return via the Aqueduct trail.  Please bring food & water.  History, birds, botany, and beauty may be anticipated. We will conclude at the historic 1902 golf clubhouse, where (at your option) you may purchase snacks and cocktails.

Inquiries:  Sara Kelsey, sarakelsey@gmail.com or 646-303-1448.

Urban Trail Conference leader:  David Bernstein.
