No matter if you’re a beginner or an expert, there are plenty of roller-skating options to choose from in Westchester.

By Alexia Roisenvit and Ryan Noel

Who doesn’t love roller-skating? A popular social pastime that eventually found its way into the competitive sports world, roller-skating is an attractive way to get moving and have a great time. Whether you’re involved in a sport or just enjoy roller-skating for fun, it’s a great way to stay healthy and get out and about with friends (or by yourself!). Luckily, there are multiple spots in Westchester to flex your skating muscles.

Michael Geary Memorial Roller Hockey Rink

740 US-6, Mahopac

As we know, roller-skating doesn’t have to be an indoor activity, especially on a gorgeous day. This public hockey rink is open 24 hours and welcomes all skaters. There are also hockey goals if you’re in the mood for some competition. This park allows for other activities such as soccer, running, and swimming, so everyone can get in on the fun.

North and South County Trailways

See the website for major access points

These paved scenic trails are perfect for skaters looking to cruise in nature. The North and South County Trailways offer multiple paths to adventure on, such as The New York City trail, which travels 36 miles north directly to Putnam County; the North County Trailway, a 22.1-mile-long pathway with an abundance of nature; and the South County Trailway, a 14.1-mile-long stretch that’s easily accessible. Both the South County Trailway and North County Trailway are next to the Saw Mill River Parkway, with minimal road crossing.

Putnam Trailway

Parking at the intersection of Croton Falls Road and Mud Pond Road

This is a nine-mile, scenic, off-road paved trail. Skaters can find the beginning of the trail in Mahopac at a trailhead parking area located at the intersection of Croton Falls Road (CR34) and Mud Pond Road. However, there are multiple entrances along the route. The trail leads north, where you’ll skate through wooded areas and alongside scenic lakes. The trail then passes through Carmel and ends in Brewster at the intersection of Carmel Ave (Route 6) and Putnam Ave.

Bronx River Pathway 

Kensico Dam, Valhalla

This is another paved path located in Valhalla near the Kensico Dam. The path stretches 5.8 miles and has slight hills, but most would consider it an easy route. You will be skating beside bikers, runners, and hikers. Parking is free, so grab your friends or family and spend your day skating outdoors in Westchester.
