I rode those trails for years before moving out of state. Loved them! They used to close the trails twice per year when the Rockefellers had a huge gathering and the carriages used to come out. If you were able to get near the trails, you were able to see them being driven around in those antique buggies.

We used to ride to the top of some of the hills and be able to get a view of the estate. There are some places where there are fountains built into walls where we were told they used for watering the dogs when they were out hunting. There are 3 stone bridges as well if I remember correctly.

I used to board at a place called Beech Hill

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Must be John Jr then. They used to have rental horses at the top barn. My horses were in the bottom, left barn ... in fact, if I remember correctly, the middle stall on the left as you enter the barn.

Great trails, I miss them. The carriage rides were during the times of John D and Happy.
