Castle Rock Unique Area consists of 129 acres of gently sloping fields and much steeper woodlands. An old carriage road runs along the inside edge of the woodlands, near the fields. This carriage road leads to a beautiful gazebo with a great view of the Hudson Highlands. Please stay off the private driveway that leads to the castle on the hilltop. The drive and castle are private property and trespassing is prohibited. You may cross the drive, but not walk along it.
Of the additional buildings, one is a residence for law enforcement staff and the other is private property and gated. Please respect our neighbors on either side by not trespassing.
