Located only an hour from New York City this amazingly beautiful park has everything for the family, Forest, Lakes, Wildlife, Hiking, Fishing and pleasant country roads. Not crowded and there is a visitor center that is well worth a stop.

Take the hike to the fire tower. Great views of surrounding area and Greenwood lake. On a real clear day you can see NYC in the distance. Another great hike is around Sterling lake. Enjoy!
