Walk Along the Old Croton Aqueduct
Year-round
Seven days a week, dawn to dusk

A Trail Walk along the Old Croton Aqueduct

The experience

Getaway and enjoy a day, taking in beautiful Hudson River views and a historic walk along the Old Croton Aqueduct, connecting the Rivertowns of Hastings-on-Hudson, Dobbs Ferry and Irvington. The Aqueduct forms a level, flat and shaded walking path behind the homes of this pleasant residential area along the Hudson River, giving one the sense of going back to the time of unpaved roads and horse-powered transportation.

You can start your walk in any of the three Rivertowns and return by Metro-North from any of the villages, or stop in Yonkers on your way up or back to take in its new waterfront attractions and restaurants. Each village offers beautiful Hudson River views, including the breathtaking Palisades cliffs, as well as fine and casual dining; shops for arts, crafts and clothing; bike rentals; and spas. On weekends, you'll find farmers markets, local festivals and events, as well as evening entertainment.

Getting there

Take the Hudson Line to Hastings-on-Hudson, Dobbs Ferry or Irvington, based on the itinerary of your choice. You might select one village as a starting point based on where you'd like to have lunch or dinner. Your walks all begin and end at one of the three train stations, so there's no need for a taxi or additional public transportation.
