Old Croton Aqueduct State Historic Park

About 40 minutes’ drive north on the other side of the Hudson, this state historic park dates back to 1837 when construction began with the purpose of supplying New York with a supply of fresh water. Believed to be the answer for the next few centuries, the booming population made this aqueduct obsolete less than fifty years after its construction. (Though it did still help to supply water until 1967.) Today, 26.2 miles of the original 41-mile aqueduct comprise this linear park, which features historic sites such as the Double Arch (a bridge-within-a-bridge), the Keeper’s House, and Weir Chambers.

Activities:

  • Hiking
  • Biking
  • Sightseeing
  • Horseback Riding
  • Birdwatching
  • Snowshoeing
  • Cross Country Skiing
