ARMONK, N.Y. -- Jane and Walt Daniels will present a talk on their book "Walkable Westchester" on Tuesday, Oct. 14 at Cranberry Lake Preserve in North White Plains.
The program begins with refreshments at 7 p.m., followed by the presentation at 7:30 p.m.
Visitors will learn that Westchester County has a wealth of hiking and walking opportunities. The Daniels will take participants on a visual tour of some of the 200 parks, containing more than 600 miles of trails, listed in their book.
They will present a visual tour with photographs as they relate stories of more than two dozen places to visit. Learn who donated land and how parks got their names. Find out about the wide variety of walking opportunities along such varied terrain as paved paths, dirt roads or narrow rocky trails in environments that are urban, suburban, along the shore, in woodlands and fields, or near lakes, streams, vernal pools and wetlands.
The Daniels are avid walkers, having hiked thousands of miles over the years, and also are open space advocates.
Their book is now in its second edition. They are working on a trails project that will link several parks and parcels of land along the Taconic State Parkway in Yorktown.
Copies of their “Walkable Westchester” book also will be available at the event.
Cranberry Lake Preserve is located on Old Orchard Street in North White Plains.
