Woodlands Legacy Fields Park, Yorktown Heights, NY

May 20, 2013
Distance: 2.4 miles
Time: 1 hour 9 minutes
Year to date miles: 116.8

Map: Woodlands Legacy Fields Park

Parking: At the end of Strang Boulevard (off of Route 132) in parking lot at the end of the sports fields. Notice there is a Strang Boulevard at the south end of the map. This is a dead end, and although it looks like a car could be parked there, there really isn't designated parking. The northern portion of Strang has a large parking lot, where lots of parents parked to watch their kids playing sports.

Restrooms: None that I noticed
Post hike dinner: None

Directions: From parking area, follow gas pipeline. Pass the green trail, then turn left on the blue trail.
Follow the blue trail to the end. Turn right on the yellow/white trail and cross a bridge. Immediately turn right on the yellow trail. Follow the yellow trail to the end. Turn left on the white trail. Turn right on the red trail. Follow the red trail to the end. Turn left on the white trail. Turn right on the green trail. Follow the green trail to the end. Turn right on the pink trail and return to parking area.

Notes: We didn't see anyone on the trails. The trails are also used by mountain bikers. We thought the hike was pretty, but when it gets near the Taconic State Parkway, it is very noisy. Luckily you can't really see the Taconic much from the trails, at least in the summer. This is an easy hike.

Trailhead. We should have started on the pink trail, but we ended up starting on the gas pipeline.
