Did you know that some of New York State's most impressive modern marvels are only a 45 minute train ride north of NYC?
Join New York Adventure Club for a five-mile guided hike, tour, and exploration through the historic remnants of the Old Croton Aqueduct, New York City’s first water supply system built between 1837 and 1842.
Led by Old Croton Aqueduct expert Kyle Sallee, our easy trail hike from Croton-on-Hudson to Ossining will include:
This relatively flat hike should take between 4-5 hours, so please bring comfortable shoes, water, and snacks.
Food, drinks, and restrooms can be found in the town of Ossining, our final destination on the hike.
Kyle will be visiting a local eatery for some post-hike food and drinks, so stick around afterward to debrief with your fellow adventurers!

By Public Transit: Take the Poughkeepsie Station bound Metro-North Express Train departing at 8:45am from Grand Central Terminal, and disembark at the Croton-Harmon Station at 9:24am. If you miss that train, you can hop on the 8:45am local Hudson Line train, which gets into Croton-Harmon station at 9:39am.
Metro-North tickets can now be purchased via your smartphone — click here for more details.
Trains from Ossining depart for GCT roughly every 30 minutes.
By Car: Since our hike ends in Ossining (five miles from the starting point at Croton Gorge Park), we recommend that attendees traveling by car first park at Ossining Station (so your vehicle is where the tour concludes), take the Poughkeepsie Station bound Metro-North Train one stop to Croton-Harmon Station, and then take a J&S cab or uber.
For those who have a means of backtracking to Croton Gorge Park by way of second vehicle or cab, we recommend parking at Croton Gorge Park's lower lot — the park fee is $5 for those with a Park Pass, $10 without.
