DetailsEvent Type Walk/Hike Description A rail spur was built to connect Yorktown Heights to a mental institution in what is now FDR State Park. Abandoned in 1917, this route connects Yorktown Heights to the interior of FDR State Park. Since 2016, the Ny-NJ Trail Conference has helped Friends of FDR State Park and the Yorktown Trail Town Committee to provide access along that route traversing in or along wetlands. The connection involved building five bridges and over 800 feet of boardwalks built by volunteers including four Eagle Scout projects.
