Explore. Experience. Enjoy.

Natural beauty is one of Rockland's most alluring attractions and with 32,000 acres of untouched parkland, there’s no better place to experience the great outdoors than Rockland County. The county’s extensive park system is designated as a Preserve America Community made up of over 3,000 acres within 30 parks.

Visit the second-largest state park in New York - Harriman State Park. With over 200 miles of hiking trails, visitors of all ages and levels can immerse themselves in forest walks, along lake fronts, or exposed mountain profiles. 

Take a bike ride along the shared use path across the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge which at 3.6 miles, is one of the longest bicycle/pedestrian paths in the nation.

Rockland is also host to the annual Gran Fondo NY World Championship Bike Race that begins in New York City and travels up the Palisades Parkway to Bear Mountain and back.
