Local Lore and Legends

September 29 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm


Did you know that the famous horseman ride in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow likely took place here in the Preserve? Actually, there are quite a few lesser-known legends that take place on this land. The names of some of our most iconic locations (Spook Rock, Ravens Rock, Witch’s Spring) come from stories that have been told by locals dating back hundreds of years. Join Ranger Su (tonight as “Major Su”) for a 2-mile twilight hike to visit some of these locations and hear their stories. Cost: $4. Max: 30 people.
