Monsey Glen County Park

Park Overview:

The Glen is a tract of land with a full growth of verdure covering many walking trails. It contains scenic natural beauty with sandstone overhangs. Below, a stream flows to the southwest. Plant life is unique since the glacier bypassed the area. It is one of the few places in the Rockland County where Trailing Arbutus grows.

Park Description:

This park contains several sandstone Native American caves where numerous artifacts-some over 3,000 years old-have been discovered. These artifacts are now archived at the Trailside Museum at Bear Mountain. A series of steps cut out of the sandstone rock-the purpose of which is unknown-leads to a platform.

Trails Overview:

A white-blazed trail loops around the park and passes by these features.
