Hiking & Recreation
Pawling and the surrounding area have amazing opportunities to spend time outdoors. There are great options for every season ranging from a canoe trip on the Great Swamp, a romp on snowshoes through the winter wonderland of the Pawling Nature Preserve, a summer evening hike on the Appalachian Trail to a quiet day of fishing. Pawling is also highly accessible - take Metro North to Pawling (just 1 hour and 40 minutes from New York City) and a 5 minute walk to the Pawling Cycle Shop where you can rent bikes or take the train a little further down the line and get off at the Appalachian Trail stop and be on the trail when you step off the train! You can also access the area easily from the Taconic Parkway, Route 22, or I-684. If you have a good swimming hole or hiking spot or other information for our website please email us at info@oblongland.com.
