Park Description:
Take a picnic basket, add a sunny day, find the shade of one of Rockwood Hall’s many spreading sycamore, maple, or weeping beech trees and you have the recipe for a perfect outing. Exotic trees, wide paths, and sweeping views make it an enjoyable place to spend the day. Rockwood Hall is managed as a part of Rockefeller State Park Preserve.
Trails Overview:

Carriage roads of this former estate circle the property sometimes on a path which overlooks the Hudson River to the Palisades. Although none of the paths are blazed, navigation is easy and there is something interesting around every corner. The Rockwood Hall Brook Trail goes through small rhododendron groves, crosses five bridges, and passes a 0.1 mile connection to the Old Croton Aqueduct. 

From the Taconic State Parkway or Route 9A, take Route 117 west to Rockwood Road where it ends at the parking area.
From Route 9 just north of Tarrytown and south of the junction with Route 117, follow the entrance road to Phelps Memorial Hospital all the way through the hospital facility to a parking area to Rockwood Road.
Public transportation: Beeline Bus #13 goes to Rockwood Road, just past the parking areas of Phelps Memorial Hospital.
