Van Cortlandt Park Loop
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
- 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.
