First Day History Hike (Long Valley Farm): Join us for a 3-mile walk around the Long Valley Farm park area to learn more of the history of the park, going back to when it was a working farm and part of the Rockefeller estate. We will view some of the old farm and estate buildings and learn about the people that lived here and how the farm functioned. The hike will begin at 11 a.m. Please meet in the field next to the park welcome center.
Sense Hike (Long Valley Farm): Join our park superintendent on a 1-mile hike designed to introduce children (and kids of all ages!) to nature and experiencing the wonders of the natural world. Please meet at the picnic area in the parking lot at 11 a.m.
