GUIDED TRAIL HIKE: Rockland County Versus Big Oil! At Tallman Mountain State Park

This Saturday, May 20, from 10 a.m. – 12 noon join Trail Guide Jack Bloom at Tallman Mountain State Park for a moderate to easy, 3-mile walk, appropriate for youth and up, on a flat wide trail that offers glimpses of the Hudson River.

Walk through the history of Rockland County versus Big Oil.

What really happened at Tallman Mountain State Park? See if you can spot the evidence.

Hikers will meet at the secondary lot, small south lot, on the east side of Route 9W in Sparkill. Going South on Route 9W, the road to the parking is a few hundred feet before The Market store. If you reach The Market, you have gone too far. Please note this is not the main parking lot and there is NO admission fee. Important general information about the guided walks:

Bring snacks and plenty of water, bug spray, sunscreen, binoculars, and a walking stick if you would like. Unless otherwise specified, these walks are not stroller-friendly, dogs are not allowed, and there are no rest rooms available.

All walks are rain or shine. Hiking boots are recommended, or else closed-toe shoes with sturdy soles. Wear light-colored clothing and dress for the weather (bring a jacket, hat, and rain gear as needed).

Pre-registration for all walks is suggested but not required.
