“Merestead is a Westchester County Park with meadows, woods, a historic mansion, and trail connectors”— Rob Cummings
The trails connect on the eastern side to Butler Sanctuary and make this park an important part of the Northern Westchester Greenway.
This hike takes you on a tour of Merestead featuring the Mansion and Hill Trail which has views of the Hudson Valley and large trees in several spots, and the Upper Old Oregon Road which was formerly the Old Oregon Road but is now abandoned and a nature trail.
