The 547-acre Tourne County Park features an extensive network of trails, which follow both footpaths and woods roads through a dense deciduous forest. It includes a wildflower section that features over 250 species of native plants. A highlight of the park is the view from the top of the Tourne [elevation 897 feet], which includes the New York City skyline on clear days.
|Trails Overview:|| |
A network of 9 blazed trails, ranging from 0.25 mile to just under 3.25 miles, provide multiple opportunities for loop hikes. The DeCamp loop trail [Yellow blaze; 1.3 miles] passes through the Top of the Tourne with several viewpoints. The Red Trail [3.23 miles] loops around the park; at one point it proceeds through a gate in a fence which protects wildflowers from damage by animals. The Rattle Snake Trail section of this loop trail parallels Rattlesnake Meadows.
The park's web site offers several versions of a trail map.
