Due to a private event, the entire Lyndhurst estate will be closed to ALL visitors from March 22nd through April 21st.

Vehicles, walkers, and cyclists will be turned away at the main entrance by security and our Gate Staff. Those who normally walk the Old Croton Aqueduct State Park Trail will be detoured to South Broadway with the help from signs and OCA staff. Trail users of the North end of the Westchester County Riverwalk (behind Montefiore) will find the gate closed and locked. Please follow staff instructions and property signage for an alternate walking route.

Yes, there were some!

From March 2020 on, the Keeper’s House was closed. No happy faces enjoying our exhibits.

But the trail is different.

There are more walkers than ever before. We were stunned to do a count of map orders in 2020 compared to 2019. Orders were up an astonishing 93%!! The trail tells the tale. It is looking very well used. And well cared for, too.
