Walks to and from the New Croton Dam and Croton Gorge County Park just became a lot more convenient, thanks to a handsome flight of steps built by a Briarcliff Manor Eagle Scout. Drive to the entrance (green sign) of the Town of Ossining’s Gerlach Park on Old Albany Post Road. Bear left to the north end and park in the large asphalt area at the base of the new steps. These take you to the Aqueduct, which adjoins the park. This area is north of the GE campus. It’s about 2.5 miles to the dam. Thank you Ossining and Scout!
