About 15 miles, moderate pace, on the Bronx River Pathway from the Kensico Dam in Valhalla to Bronxville. From Bronxville hikers can choose to take the Metro-North train back to the city or continue walking about 2 miles to the 2 train at 241st Street.
We will start by walking on top of the Kensico Dam, then head south 5 miles along the pathway to Hartsdale, then walk on suburban streets to Scarsdale, where we will pick up the pathway again and walk 4.6 miles to Bronxville.
Bring snacks, water and lunch. We will take a lunch break in Hartsdale. The paths are mostly flat with a few inclines, there will be some mud and some puddles along the way.
The hike will parallel the Metro-North Harlem Line, so there will be drop off points to catch the train at North White Plains, White Plains, Hartsdale, Scarsdale, Crestwood and Tuckahoe.
