For some reason, I thought this hike was going to be less suburban. Okay, I knew it was in the suburbs, but I thought we'd see more parks and fewer houses. Instead, the first 2/3 was a mix of small shoreline parks and expensive homes, and the final 1/3 was on a strip of land that had somehow been preserved in suburbia.
We had a day that was sunny despite the cold - and it was cold. Early on, we did some in-and-out walks into parks.
After that, we wove in and out of expensive homes and waterfront parks.
The end of the 12-mile hike was on the Leatherstocking Trail.
I can't say there was anything spectacular about the hike; if you live in the area, it would be a natural place to go. As a destination, it's a change of pace, but not the kind of hiking one falls in love with.
