The Secret Bamboo Forest

Garrison, NY 10524, USA
22 Kudos
There is technically an actual trail by the Garrison Institute that follows the escape route of Benedict Arnold. However, on a recent afternoon, I went to explore it and got distracted by an old paved road that veers away from the trail. The road ends a short way in to the woods... and has a massive and unexpected bamboo grove! The grove backs up to the edge of the golf course next door and a drop-off with a pond at the bottom. It was a peaceful spot to get out of a light rain and contemplate the universe for a little while.
