Ward Pound Ridge - Deer Hollow Trail

April 17, 2013

Distance: 3.8 miles
Time: 1 hours 24 minutes

Year to date miles: 35.9

 Map: Ward Pound Ridge Pick up a map when you pay for parking.

Parking: Enter park, pay for parking and keep driving straight until you reach the Kimberly Bridge parking area. There is plenty of parking. Cost is $10 without a Westchester County Parks Pass. $5 with a Parks Pass. There was no parking attendant when we arrived in the evening, so it was free.

Post hike dinner: none
Restrooms: In parking lot

More information on the park:
The Deer Hollow trail is marked by "DH" blazes. From the parking area, cross the street to start the hike. The Deer Hollow trail crosses the park road once more - after that, there are no road crossings. Follow the DH blazes until you return to the parking area. Park map listed as 3.5 miles. Our GPS listed as 3.8 miles

Notes: This is a very popular park. This hike was easy/moderate. This trails are very clearly blazed. The map also has numbers at intersections which correspond to numbers posted on trees. On some trails, you will come across a lot of people. We didn't see anyone on the trails - this was a weekday evening.

I thought this was a fun chair. Nope. It's a grill.
