Yorktown Heights is an unincorporated community within Yorktown, NY, which is located about an hour from New York City. Yorktown Heights is a beautiful community and a peaceful escape from the busy city where you can relax and regroup, which also makes it a great place to be a dog owner!

Its location made it an important spot during the Revolutionary War, and the community's rich history is worth exploring. The railroad station is even listed as a historic spot on the National Register of Historic Places. Come and see the beauty of Yorktown Heights' countryside for yourself, and don't forget to bring your dog along, because your fur baby will enjoy it more than you will!

If relaxation and beautiful views are what you're after, then you need to take your dog to Turkey Mountain Nature Preserve, located in Yorktown. This is a 125-acre preserve with views of the Hudson, the NYC skyline, and Bear Mountain. You can get some epic photo opportunities here just by taking an easy hike; just don't forget your water. 

Woodland Legacy Trails are a set of unmarked trails where you and Fido can get lost for as long as you'd like. The trails pass over a trout river as they wind through fields and natural land.

You and your precious pal will love exploring Yorktown Heights and everything it has to offer!

    If you're fascinated by history or mining, bring your dog for a stroll at Granite Knolls Park. This is a hidden park that has a variety of trails and terrain for you and Fido to sniff out. Along the trails, you'll see various quarry pits, some old gear, and even cable. You will have to keep your dog on a leash on this trail. Bring plenty of water with you. Getting here is a little tricky; the park doesn't have its own entrance. You will have to start from Woodlands Legacy Field Park and take the Taconic Bridge Trail to find it.

You can check in with your pup at the front desk and get a complete map of all the trails available throughout the park's 730 acres. There are fourteen miles of trails, so you and Fido will be good and tired when you leave!

    Sylvan Glen Nature Preserve is another wonderful spot for history lovers. It houses a former quarry amongst its nature trails. Your pup will need to be leashed to explore the trails with you, but if you're looking for an off-leash adventure, then visit Sylvan Glen Paw Park. This dog park is about an acre and features separate areas for large and small dogs. Drinking water isn't provided here, so be sure to bring your own. Waste baggies are supplied by the park. There are always fur friends here to meet and play with! Make sure you clean up after your pup, especially when outside the dog park, to protect the animals that live here.
