Ward Pound Ridge Reservation is owned by Westchester County. A large portion of the 4700 acres is in Lewisboro. Some of the landscape is reminiscent of the 18th and 19th century farms from which it was assembled, but a large part is ancient wilderness. The biodiversity is broad and the topography diverse from deep hollows to rigdes 800 feet high. An extensive network consisting of 35 miles of trails for hiking and cross country skiing covers all parts of the park. Maps, available at the Trailside Museum, are essential and use of a compass is strongly recommended. Brown, rainbow and brook trout inhabit the Cross River and Waccabuc River which flow through the park. Camping is allowed by reservation. There are a few trails which can be easily accessed from the Lewisboro Town Park.
