Winter Recreation

Although I'm looking forward to spring and warm weather, I'm going to miss one of my favorite winter activities, Cross Country Skiing. There are some wonderful trails in Rockland County and a few weeks ago when we had a heavy snowfall, my husband and I, along with our dog Lefty, parked by the firehouse at Rockland Lake State Park and skied along the Hudson River on the trail that connects Upper Nyack to Haverstraw. The views of the river through the snow covered trees were spectacular. The following day we went to Tallman State Park and skied along the trails that connect the park and Piermont. We followed the trail through the woods, instead of the more hilly trail that traverses the Hudson River. It was peaceful and beautiful, we only saw 3 other people in the 2 hours that we were out. Parking is available in the park, and there is also a lot on Route 9W in Palisades, across the street from the Rockland Country Club. Another day when we didn't feel like driving, we walked over to the South Nyack trail which connects South Nyack, through Upper Grandview and Grandview, to Piermont. It is a flat 3 mile trail that gave us quite a workout! There are many hidden and unknown trails throughout Rockland County, but there is also great cross country skiing in Harriman State Park and around Bear Mountain, to name a few. Give it a try, you'll really enjoy the beauty, serenity, and fresh air! .
