Walking Tour Retrospective: Van Cortlandt Park in The Bronx

On a glorius autumn day October 29, 2022, I lead a group of 30 people on a exploration of the human and natural history of this 1,146 acre park (larger than Central Park). The fall foliage was gorgeous and is captured in the pictures below.

Park highlights include the 188 acre Northwest Forest which features the 1.5 mile Cass Gallagher Nature Trail. This is an older natural forest with magificent trees and rocky outcroppings, including boulders from the last ice age and large formations of Fordham Gneiss (one billion year old rocks!).

Some specific sites with links.
