Pound Ridge Reservation
Duration: 2-5 Hours
Difficulty: Easy - Moderate
Distance: 4-7+ Miles
Elevation: 420+ Feet
This is the perfect introduction to hiking, and is easy enough for families with younger children. The short 4-mile loop to the Leatherman's Cave is a fun trip on well groomed trails, and takes most hikers only 2-2.5 hours. After the cave is a short climb up to a viewpoint.
Pound Ridge Reservation has a large trail system, allowing us to make this loop even shorter, or extend the planned route as we go. There are several other views and points of interest throughout the park including Bear Rock Petroglyph, a verified carving at least 5,000 years old created by Native Americans.
