“Run deep into Briarcliff's largest park, featuring rugged terrain and elevation changes that make it a fun challenge!”— Henry Jamin
Descend from the summit and take a left to return on the Red Trail. There is a steep descent on this trail that leads you toward, and then along the Pocantico River. Further down the trail, there is a hand-operated floating dock system that acts as a ferry connecting Briarcliff's Pocantico Park with Westchester County's Pocantico Lake Park to the south.
This loop finishes with a steep, but short climb, that brings you back up to the trailhead.
