Mini-hikes near Home
Today we had planned on going hiking, but after I got back from work and Aviva got back from the gym, it seemed like there were going to be thunderstorms, so we elected to do a short hike in one of the parks near our house. We chose Sprain Ridge Park, which is about 4 miles from us, nestled in between the north and south bound branches of the Sprain Brook Parkway. It has a pool and a lot of picnic facilities, but also has a nice little network of trails which we spent an hour or two enjoying this afternoon. I love that we live somewhere so beautiful that even the space between a highway can make a lovely hike. To get to Sprain Ridge Park, head up to Jackson avenue in North Yonkers.
