Koegel Park


Location: Yorktown Heights
Distance: .8 miles
Skill Level: easy
Elevation Gain: 100′
Type of Hike: loop
Trail Condition: trail
Wow Factor: the field at the end in summer looks like fairies could live there

How to get there: From Route 6 or 202, turn onto 118.  The park is on the west side of the road with a large brown sign marking it.

Address to get you close: 200 Tomahawk St, Yorktown Heights, NY 10598


Summary: From the parking area, cross through the gate onto the greenway.  The red trail starts a few feet in on the right.

Follow red to the fork (if you follow blue, you’ll hit the bike path) and keep left on red and follow it downhill.

Red will loop back around, passing a few more blue trails.

Finally, it will dump you out into a almost magical clearing with moss and low grass.  There are picnic tables and this would be a terrific place to explore with little ones.


Facilities: none
Dogs: on 6′ leash
