The Old Croton Aqueduct State Park is a linear park running 26.2 miles from Van Cortland Park to the Croton Dam. There are more than 130 geocahes already along the trail, but we've been able to squeeze one in for the summer challenge. This cache will bring you to a lovely section in the north end near the dam.
There is no fee to enter this park. Be sure to check each park or site’s unique web page for possible trail maps and other facility specific information. www.parks.ny.gov .
