Adam Bartlett and an intrepid group of 9 runners decided to start off their New Year's Eve with a run of the entire 41 miles of the Old Croton Aqueduct route.

He writes:

"It was truly an epic day, made very difficult by the slippery mud conditions of a vast majority of the trail. Much of it was walked and not run by necessity !

As promised, I recruited individual families to continue the work of removing Garlic mustard from the trail. Two parents and their two little girls enjoyed clambering along the hillsides of the trail pulling Garlic mustard and bagging it for disposal. This family had participated in the 2019 I Love My Park Day and were pleased to have the opportunity to continue the work the following May.

The Aqueduct inspires creativity and ingenuity! We love this little house built beside the trail in Sleepy Hollow at Souglas Park!

This “Not for Sale” house is one the trail just south of Gory Brook Road. Go by. Maybe there are cookies and cakes waiting…. Or a witch’s spell. It’s just one of the treasures you’ll find if you do the 26 miles of the trail.

Our neighbor, photographer Mark Liflander (@liflanderphotography), took these wonderful pictures to document their visit.
