The Hike To New York’s Pretty Little Swan Lake Is Short And Sweet

There are so many great hikes in New York that you could do one a day for a year or two and still not hit them all. One that might sometimes get overlooked is the Swan Lake Loop in Rockefeller State Park Preserve near Hawthorne. It’s a simple hike, but one that’s enjoyable for the whole family. The scenery is stunning!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

The views are best near sunset and the foliage is simply gorgeous in the fall, but the park is open year-round and is a great option for those looking for easier hikes with good views.
