Back when Fall 2016 was starting to wrap up, and the temperature had dropped fairly low, we went on a hike up in Saxon Woods. The park is 700 acres of hiking, playgrounds, and sports fields, including a pool. The hiking trail also passes by a golf course at one point. When we went, the leaves had mostly fallen, and the clouds were out, so we had the trail mostly to ourselves (there were a few people walking their dogs). We paced it out nicely by taking the bus from Metro North to the park entrance, then did the north loop first and went into the south loop, but exited out the south to walk back to the train station and a food stop. It worked out beautifully.
Picnic tables at the entrance.
Fairly easy paths, flat and stroll-y.
Some old guards for slightly raised sections of path.
Some nice reminders that fall is still happening and it is not QUITE winter yet.
An old wall in the woods.
Trees leaned over the path.
Some sections pass by houses.
All of the fall colors.

The south loop is nice and flat as well, with an old and simple bridge.
