Sleepy Hollow Loop Walk along the Aqueduct and within the Rockefeller Preserve

June 27 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free-advanced registration required.

Free, easy, open-air walk of approximately 3 miles/hours. Meet at Aqueduct Ventilator #12, on the Aqueduct Trail just steps south of the intersection of Gory Brook Road and Ridge Street in Sleepy Hollow (on-street parking on Gory Brook Road). We will walk north and discuss the Aqueduct and view some of its structures, including a weir, a 90-foot-high embankment carrying the Aqueduct over the Pocantico River, the ghostly remnants of an old Keeper’s House, touch upon Rockefeller history and the monument in nearby Sleepy Hollow Cemetery to those in the NY Guard’s First Provisional Regiment who perished during the 1918 Spanish Influenza pandemic while guarding the Aqueduct during The Great War. Walk may be rescheduled if weather does not cooperate. Required: pre-registration. https://aqueduct.org/events/sleepy-hollow-loop-walk-5
