Favorite thing: This trail runs through Tarrytown from the Old Dutch Church Burial Ground in Sleepy Hollow to the Sleepy Hollow High School on through Tarrytown's business section and continuing south across Route 87 through the grounds of Lyndhurst and Sunnyside and finally ending in Irvington. The trail is owned and managed by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation and offers a beautiful and scenic walk from northern Westchester County to New York City. A map of the trail is available through The Friends of the Old Croton Aqueduct for $4.50, call 914-693-4117. I have read that this map has won awards and is quite detailed regarding route of the trail and the various attractions along the way. Although I have never walked the trail in its entirety, I have walked it with Patrick in the village of Sleepy Hollow. It is very pretty and worth the time.
