Old Croton Aqueduct: Yonkers to Tarrytown

******IMPORTANT REVISION***** ********We're going to start the walk at the Yonkers Station, so that a bathroom break at the Yonkers Public Library can be taken at the beginning of the walk. This does add distance to the walk, some on the streets of Yonkers, to the start of the Aqueduct trail. You should still get on the same train leaving Grand Central Station ( you can look for Tom Bergen at the information booth on the main concourse) but your destination changes to Yonkers"********

Join us on August 5, 2017 for a  9 mile 3 to 4 hour walk up the Old Croton Aqueduct starting at the Glenwood train station in Yonkers.  After a short walk up Glenwood Ave, we'll pick up the Aqueduct Trail and head north through Yonkers, Hastings, and into Dobbs Ferry, for a short break at the Aqueduct keepers house. Bathrooms are available here.  Continuing up the Trail we'll pass through Dobbs Ferry and Irvington before emerging on Route 9 and heading up into Tarrytown. The walk will end at the Tarrytown MetroNorth station.

The Aqueduct follows the Hudson line, and there are drop off points in each town along the way. I'd bring water, but there are shops in Dobbs Ferry, about a block off the Trail if you need to purchase  some. There are many fine cafes and restaurants in Tarrytown for lunch at the end of the walk or bring a lunch and eat in Pierson Park, on the Hudson Riverwalk with views overlooking the New New York Bridge. Return to Grand Central on the train from Tarrytown. There are 3 trains per hour and the fare is approximately $10.75.

Meeting: Take the 8:20 out of Grand Central to the Glenwood Station. The fare is approximately $8.25.  We'll meet at the Glenwood Station at 9 am.
