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!

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

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.
