Top of the Hill

Although it's impossible to miss the huge hill in the center of Croton Point Park, it somehow took me years to realize that there were trails across it. Perhaps because I had read that the hill was actually a trash heap—on what had originally been a swamp in the point—it still took me awhile to venture onto it. What a pleasant surprise. The hill is covered with a 113 acre meadow full of wild flowers and swaying grasses. Though it is not that high, it affords a stunning vista over Half Moon Bay to the north and the wetlands and river to the south. If only all dumps end up this beautiful! Croton Point Park
