Walkable Westchester is the creation of Jane and Walt Daniels, Westchester residents who are long-time hikers, trail designers and builders, and open-space advocates. The original idea for the book came about when, unable to find a hiking guide exclusive to Westchester, they decided to create one themselves. They thought the task would involve about 70 to 80 parks and about 200 to 250 miles of trail. Eight years later, in 2009, they came out with the first edition and let readers in on a secret: there a lot of open public space in Westchester and, no matter where you live, some of it is close by.
The book covers a wide variety of walking, from level, paved pathways to narrow woodland trails. The environments range from salt-water wetlands to rock outcroppings. So for any kind of walking in Westchester, whether a suburban mom looking for a paved path or a veteran hiker out for a day-long trek, this book is the perfect companion.
