Park Description:
Robert Halmi, Jr. donated the 53 acre Halmi Tract in 2002. Two white trails wind miles through the property. Green trails connect to private property and to the Hearst-Mead Preserve. A stone outcropping on the highest point provides a view of the Titicus Reservoir.

The 11-acre O’Donohue Tract is adjacent to the Halmi Tract and is named to honor the leadership contribution made by Kevin and Laura O’Donohue.

In 1977, Eugenie Mead donated the steeply sloped and wooded 70-acres which became the Hearst-Mead Preserve. The 1.1 miles of green-blazed trails are along woods roads and cross many stone walls. Hikers will find North Salem Bridle Trail Association blazes as well as green diamond tags.
