NY: Westchester County-Pound Ridge-Zofnass Family Preserve

Buddha Bridge, a Tarzan vine, a waterfall staircase and a double breed maple growing out of a rock are only some of the sights to see at the largest preserve of the Westchester Land Trust. With wetlands, rocky paths, well marked trails and fun facts the secret is out.

This is likely the most fun filled informative preserve I have been to – of course it helped that I also was introducing it to my son.

Buddha’s Bridge

We only likely did about 2 miles today of the nearly 7.5 miles of trails which can be done as loops. I really love loop trails as every step is new! With the ice forming over the streams made for some fun photo ops including seeing sap that had frozen over as it seeped down the tree.

Tarzan vines and icy streams

Of course it’s a bit of a different experience hiking with someone who is 6’4” when you are a full foot shorter. However, what it taught me is that he has a completely different perspective up there!!

Parking is slight along the side of the road with only two explicit spots at the entrance. So much more to see than what I have shared- so many gifts from being present with my son.

I’ll be back! See you there! Here’s an outtake from the adventure
