Houses or hiking? Scenic Hudson helped settle the debate.
ORANGEBURG, Rockland County (550 acres) — When threatened with a large residential development, Scenic Hudson engaged with local community members to protect the forested ridgeline of this county park. History buffs will enjoy the remains of a Nike missile base atop the mountain. During the Cold War, it protected Manhattan from Soviet attack. For inquiries, call 845-364-2670.
Free and open year-round, sunrise to sunset.
