More Bridle Paths, & Bridges too.

These bridle paths and bridges were built in the 1920s & 30s by John D. Rockefeller Jr. on his Pocantico Hills, NY estate. Most of these roads are open to the public, and have been since their completion in the 30s. See my earlier post for more images, and the Rockefeller State Park Preserve website for directions and maps.

    Thank you for those marvelous photos of the bridal paths. As a youngster walking those we frequently saw riders and horse drawn coaches pass by. We did not know who was passing but friendly waves were always exchanged. We assumed the coach riders were family members. This was in the 1930s and 40s.
