Fun in Rockland County: Buttermilk Falls & Rockland Center for the Arts

I was heading north from Westchester into Rockland County to take a short hike at Buttermilk Falls [199 South Greenbush Road, West Nyack], it seemed like a great idea for a pit stop on my way to the Culinary Institute. I had seen some gorgeous spring falls around this time and had high expectations, silly me!

IMG_4442The hike around Buttermilk Falls is relatively short and leads to a nice overlook after making your way up a nice hill.

The trip was not in vain without a waterfall, as we enjoyed the fresh air and exercise, and discovered a sculpture park right up the road! The Rockland Center for the Arts [27 South Greenbush Road, West Nyack, NY 10994] was such a delightful surprise. It is free to investigate the grounds and observe all of the obscure sculptures.
